Local martial arts studios raise money during Domestic Violence Awareness Month
In an effort to make a difference during Domestic Violence Month in October, Students from Twin Rivers Taekwondo and Columbus Bujutsu collected money that will benefit local entities that make a difference in regard to addressing domestic problems.
In total, $6,122 was raised, according to released information.
Students from the martial arts studios were asked to collect pledges from businesses, families and friends to support the Center for Survivors, Columbus Police Department, Platte County Sheriff’s Office and the Nebraska State Patrol, according to released information.
These pledges would then be used by these agencies to help support children and families who are in difficult situations. The instructors and students came together on Friday, Nov. 9, and broke their boards during the event, which also served as the groups’ “Back the Blue” event in support of area law enforcement.
