Making wishes come true since 1990. The partnership between the Karate Institute and Make-A-Wish has granted over 60 wishes thanks to our Kick-A-Thon event over the past 30+ years.

The Kick-A-Thon is an annual event held by the Karate Institute in the late spring .  Students obtain pledges from sponsors for a flat fee, or per kick basis. At the Kick-A-Thon event participants are grouped  to kick off against their peers.  The top kickers from each group kick off to determine who is the regional top kicker. That regional top kicker will get to kick off against other regions during our Summer Games event.

The event is a fun way for the Karate Institute members and family to help support a wonderful organization like Make A Wish foundation. We have had the pleasure of meeting many of the Wish Kids and their families.
