Cycle Relay 2018

WWF 1In less than a month James Wyatt will be taking another team up the stairs of the CN Tower to help fundraise for the World Wildlife Fund. This will be his seventh year helping the WWF aim to make a positive impact in the world.

How does climbing stairs help?

In order to participate in the event, each climber must raise a minimum of $150.00, which goes towards the global efforts of the World Wildlife Fund. His team is encouraged to fundraise as much as they can, aiming for $1000.00 each year.

In addition to the CN Tower Climb, the Kazoku Martial Arts Family is also looking to fundraise for their cultural experience in Japan 2021. We will be sending our students to go train with the masters within the Seiwa Kai Association in Tokyo and to have the opportunity to experience Japanese culture first hand.


For both of these events, James has organized a 12 hour relay to be held online via Instagram (@KMACentre) this coming Sunday, March 18th to collect online donations while him and his students cycle on their stationary bikes from 8am-8pm. Viewers who donate will also have the chance to enter in our raffle for a wonderful bike (for ages 7-10) donated by our friends at 3SIXTY5 Cycling.

So be sure to follow us and watch us live as we challenge ourselves and our community to keep the wheels spinning for twelve straight hours!

World Wildlife Fund’s Annual CN Tower Climb

13002356_818875411579211_898558819109212291_oIt’s that time of year again when the WWF asks for our help to protect endangered species and habitats around the world. Their global efforts are crucial in preserving life and reducing our carbon footprint. We may not be able to hop on a plane this instant to protect wildlife in the amazon, however, we can certainly do what we can locally.

Every year the World Wildlife Fund hosts an annual climb up the CN Tower (Toronto’s tallest freestanding building). With over 144 flights of stairs, we strive to climb the tower as fast as we can. In addition to this challenge we aim to fundraise what we can to help fund the WWF and their efforts.

How you can help:

  1. Visit our team page and donate today!
  2. Visit us LIVE on Instagram (@KMACentre) while we host our 12 hour cycle relay

Members of our club our welcome to join us for the climb. This year’s theme… Karate VS Fitness. Visit our team page to join.

To really push our members to be the best they can be! In addition, it’s a great way for us to set milestones for ourselves as a club. We will be hosting assessments every couple of months and hopefully in a few different locations to vary our assessments.
