Cam­bridge child in need of a mar­tial arts out­let

Dorchester Star - - REGIONAL -

Seven-year-old Mar­cus lives with his grand­par­ents in Cam­bridge.

When he is not in school, he loves watch­ing car­toons and en­joys karate ac­tion TV shows. How­ever, this is Mar­cus’ only form of en­ter­tain­ment be­cause his grand­par­ents live on a fixed in­come. His grand­par­ents no­tice that be­cause he watches too much TV on his spare time, he is not ver y pro­duc­tive.

They would like to see their grand­child spend time away from the TV and go out­side of his room to play, make new friends and ex­er­cise. His grand­par­ents would like to sign him up for Karate lessons and would like to buy him a mar­tial arts out­fit and sneak­ers for Christ­mas.

Since they live on a fixed in­come, this pur­chase is above their abil­ity.
