華林功夫太極學校籌款鼓勵青少年向學

華林功夫太極學校慶祝十週年,以一場師生輪流上場,踢腿示範功夫的活動,籌得八千餘元,將可資助四名高中學生,獎勵他們面對各種生活困境、挑戰,仍能堅毅面對,完成學業。
獎學金名稱訂為“戰士精神獎學金”,是為強調這獎學金不以學業為評審標準,更看重學生們是否展現堅忍不拔精神。
余翠梅師傅會後在臉書上開心透露,社區大眾的熱情實在讓人感動,籌款所得數額遠超預期,本來預計獎助兩人,現在可以鼓勵四名學生了。
她坦言,以往她覺得辦籌款活動,好像是在向人要錢,不好意思這麼做,後來發覺只要是做好事,出發點善良,做得認真,人們都很願意支持,甚至產生滾動善意雪球效應,對大家都好。

Families and community members of all ages are invited to be a part of the Wah Lum Warrior Spirit Award Kick-A-Thon Party, sponsored by the Wah Lum Kung Fu & Tai Chi Academy of Malden in collaboration with the Malden Recreational Department, and open to the public at the Salemwood School Cafeteria at 529 Salem Street in Malden, on Saturday, April 23, from 12:00PM to 3:00PM.

The party includes a “kick-a-thon” in which Wah Lum martial arts students and members of the community will be performing a variety of kung fu kicks to raise money for the Warrior Spirit Scholarship Award; this award will present $2,000 each to two graduating area high school students who have shown exceptional perseverance in overcoming special adversity. In addition to student demonstrations, there will be music, food, face painting, and games and activities for everyone, with suggested donation of $20.00 per adult and $10.00 for children 12 and under.  All donations will go directly to the Scholarship Award.
