[www.inewsguyana.com] – The Guyana Karate College (GKC) is hoping to raise US$25,000 to ensure participation at the IKD/CKC Caribbean Karate Championships, scheduled for Trinidad and Tobago on August 15-17.
The GKC is planning to send approximately 40 students to the meet, comprising mainly senior students who are ranked at brown and black belts. The budget is to offset the cost of travel, food and accommodation.
The GKC has planned a fund-raising Bar-B-Que/Fish Fry and fun day for May 25 on the lawns of the college on Woolford Avenue in order to make the money.
The GKC is asking Guyanese to support the fund-raising event and the others they would be having in the coming weeks.
The Guyana Karate College’s objectives are to assist in breaking the cycle of crime, suicides and violence and promote discipline and strengthen the karate fraternity in Guyana. The Guyana Karate College is open to the public for those who wish to join.
Persons that wish to support the GKC in cash or any kind can contact Sensei Jeffery Wong or Vivien Connelly on 685-3175 and 695-1004 respectively.
