This is the 10th year that Bruce McCorry’s Martial Arts has held the Martial Arts for St. Jude program. Bruce McCorry’s Martial Arts has raised more than $15,000 since it began in 2001. “Martial arts promotes discipline and other life lessons,” said Sandra, event coordinator. “What better lesson can I teach our students than to help those in need? Our event gives us a great opportunity to help the kids of St. Jude who are fighting for their lives against deadly diseases such as cancer.”

Since opening in 1962, St. Jude has treated children from all 50 states and around the world. No child is ever denied treatment because of a family’s inability to pay. With a daily operating cost of $1.7 million, St. Jude depends mostly on public contributions and fundraising events, like Martial Arts for St. Jude.
