It’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:
- Visit our team page and donate today!
- 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.
Did you know about Kids Can Play Cambridge?
Well here’s what you need to know!
Kids Can Play is a charity organization who aims to assist families with the enrolment fee for extra curricular activities so that kids who are living under the poverty line can experience art, music, sports, and more. They assist because 10% of children within the Waterloo region live under the poverty line, which translates to thousands of children who require assistance.
Just a few of the recreational activities Kids Can Play assists families with are:
- Martial Arts
- Art Lessons

After months of preparation and continuous fundraising, our team has successfully climbed (yet again) all 144 flights of stairs up the CN Tower in Toronto this morning. With your help, we successfully raised $1,551 for the World Wildlife Fund. This money will help continue the efforts of the WWF to protect endangered species and habitats around the world.
So again, from all of us, thank-you to all of you who supported us and our efforts to reach our fundraising goal. We could not have done it without your help!
After a month of planning I’m excited to say that our event was a BIG success! But for those of you who may not know, here’s what we got up to!
A team of us will once again climb all 144 flights of stairs up the CN Tower. In doing so we have to fundraise for the World Wildlife Fund. So to collect those donations, Autumn from ONE Movement and myself (James), from Kazoku Martial Arts Centre, came up with our first ever Dance-a-thon and Karate Marathon. Two worlds collided over six hours giving our students the chance to experience something different.
With many of our own attending the event and draw prizes to be won, we were able to collect $300.00 for our fundraiser. After calculating everything that’s been collected so far, from our event and our other team members, we have raised over $1000.00! And now with just one month to go all we need to do is prepare for the hike up 144 flights of stairs in the CN Tower.
Thank-you again to all of the local businesses who donated items for our draw prizes; including Monigram Coffee Roasers, E.V.O Kitchen, Sunset Gourmet, Sugar Berries, Moksha Cambridge, and Nature’s Vibe. Also a BIG thank-you to Autumn for letting us use her space and another thank-you to all of those who participated.

Hello and thank-you once again for taking the time to read our club’s blog! Today I would like to share with you the immense impact we have been making with our Good Karma Summer Yoga program.
Each week we have been picking a different charity to raise money for. All together we have raised over $200.00 in just a couple of weeks, and with another month of Summer ahead of us we should be able to double – if not triple that number!
So far we have raised money for:
- Worldvision – providing text books and emergency water supplies
- National Service Dogs
- The Rainbow Railroad
- Medical Service Dogs for Autism
In the weeks to come, we hope to help:
- Cambridge Food Bank
- Little Friends Rescue
- The Women’s Crisis Services
- And more
You can join us every Tuesday evening from 6-7pm and Saturday morning from 10-11am and help make a bigger impact for these local charities!
