GILMANTON — The 25th Annual Kick for Cancer Charity Martial Arts Tournament, New Hampshire's longest running charity martial arts tournament, was held at the Gilmanton School.
With over 500 attendees and participants the Gilmanton School gymnasium was packed with standing room only. The tournament started at 10 a.m. and ended shortly before 5 p.m. with 6 rings operating almost all the time.
In 1990 Grandmaster Dr. Georganne Verigan started the annual Kick for Cancer Martial Arts Tournament. The purpose is to teach students how to give back to their community and to help them to realize that at sometime in our lives we all will know someone who will need the services provided by hospice. Each year proceeds of this tournament go to support local hospice programs like the one at Central New Hampshire VNA & Hospice.
"Over the last 25 years, Kick for Cancer has raised an impressive amount exceeding $130,000," States Vinnie Baiocchetti, Tournament Director and owner of White Dragon Martial Arts of New Hampshire.
"What a great event." Says Brian Winslow, Director of Development for Central New Hampshire VNA & Hospice, "I was lucky enough to attend the Kick for Cancer this year and was surprised not just by the number of participants, but also by the fact that competitors were coming from all over the country to be a part of this event."
