KARATE U.M.A.S. Kick-a-thon to be held Satur­day

A Kick-a-thon for St. Jude Chil­dren’s Re­search Hospi­tal is be­ing held Satur­day at all three lo­cal Jim Fuller U.M.A.S. Karate lo­ca­tions in the Cony­ers, Cov­ing­ton and Litho­nia area.

The vol­un­teer for this event is Mr. Jim Fuller, who en­cour­ages all stu­dents and the pub­lic to par­tic­i­pate in this unique op­por­tu­nity.

All U.M.A.S. Karate stu­dents will be col­lect­ing do­na­tions for the event. In ad­di­tion, Fuller will be do­nat­ing a por­tion of all sales and make a do­na­tion for each new stu­dent who joins the school that day.

By par­tic­i­pat­ing in or at­tend­ing the event, in­di­vid­u­als will help raise funds for chil­dren in the world who are stricken with dis­eases like can­cer, AIDS and Sick Cell Ane­mia. Th­ese funds will help St. Jude in its on­go­ing fight against child­hood can­cer and other cat­a­strophic dis­eases.

St. Jude Chil­dren’s Re­search Hospi­tal is in­ter­na­tion­ally rec­og­nized for its pi­o­neer­ing work in find­ing cures and sav­ing chil­dren. Founded by the late en­ter­tainer, Danny Thomas, and based in Mem­phis, Tenn., St. Jude freely shares its dis­cov­er­ies with sci­en­tific and med­i­cal com­mu­ni­ties around the world.

No fam­ily ever pays for treat­ments that are not cov­ered by in­sur­ance, and fam­i­lies with­out in­sur­ance are never asked to pay. St. Jude is fi­nan­cially sup­ported by ALCS, it’s fundrais­ing or­ga­ni­za­tion, through events such as the U.M.A.S. Karate’s an­nual kick-a-thon.

NEW­TON RE­CRE­ATION Com­mis­sion of­fer­ing ad­ver­tis­ing signs on fields

The New­ton County Re­cre­ation Com­mis­sion is now of­fer­ing the op­por­tu­nity to ad­ver­tise busi­nesses us­ing a 4 feet by 8 feet ball field fence sign to be lo­cated at the Turner Lake Com­plex, City Pond Com­plex and/or Stone Road Com­plex.

It is a unique chance to show sup­port of the lo­cal teams, as well as reach visit­ing fam­i­lies us­ing such a low cost ad­ver­tis­ing ve­hi­cle. This comes at a won­der­ful time see­ing that the com­plex is host­ing the Dixie Boys Base­ball World Se­ries this sum­mer.

The sign, which is white vinyl re­in­forced with ny­lon, in­cludes metal grom­mets in the hem. The cost per sign is $250 for the first year and will be dis­played through­out the du­ra­tion of the base­ball/ soft­ball sea­son.

Those wish­ing to pur­chase the signs may have up to four lines of words. Use of the logo costs an ad­di­tional $50 ($300 per sign). If one ad­ver­tised last year and wishes to re­new, the price is $200 and $200 for each suc­ces­sive year there­after.

The Re­cre­ation De­part­ment cur­rently has more than 200 teams — both youth and adult — that par­tic­i­pate in the pro­gram. It con­tin­ues to draw tour­na­ments from out­side the area, as the fa­cil­ity is na­tion­ally rec­og­nized for its ex­cel­lent con­di­tions.

For fur­ther in­for­ma­tion, con­tact Carol Rooks (spe­cial events/mar­ket­ing) at the New­ton County Re­cre­ation Com­mis­sion at (770) 786-4373 or send e-mail to car­ol­frooks@ new­ton­recre­ation.com.
