Bruce McCorry's Kick-A-Thon - St Jude Children's Hospital and the Fight towards Cancer

June 14th & 15th to HELP FIGHT CANCER

St Jude Children's Hospital and the Fight towards Cancer

The role of martial arts in fighting cancer has been well researched. A number of studies have shown that regular engagement with martial arts is an effective method that can positively impact the condition and life of cancer patients. Combinations of specific martial arts and mind healing are found to improve the situation of diagnosed patients considerably by positively affecting the cellular structure and transforming it. Martial arts are also extremely useful in fighting the side-effects of diagnosis and treatment such as fatigue and pain. It also helps to instill confidence, determination and will power in the patients.

 These research-based revelations highlight the great role that martial art schools can play in the world's fight against cancer. The Kick-A-Thon 2017, where Bruce McCorry's Martial Arts Academy (Peabody, MA) joins hands with the Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA) for raising funds for the St Jude Children's Hospital is such an honorable event.
