During October, Krav Maga Worldwide™ Official Training Centers in the United States, Canada, Japan, Mexico and Europe will all be teaming up with STOP CANCER™ for the fourth annual Krav Maga Worldwide™ Fights Cancer Fundraiser titled “Fighting For The Cure.” All proceeds will be donated directly to the “The Marni Fund” in Memory of one of Krav Maga Worldwide’s founders, Marni Levine (1969-2006), who passed away after a long and courageous fight against breast cancer.
About Stop Cancer and The Marni Fund:
Following Marni’s passing, Krav Maga Worldwide held it’s first “Fighting For The Cure” fundraiser, the proceeds of which helped plant the seed funding for The Marni Fund. Thereafter, a substantial Marni Fund three year research grant was awarded to Dr. Melanie Palomares at City of Hope. In 2007, as a result of growing support, additional grants were made to Dr. Sara Hurvitz at UCLA/Jonsson and to Dr. Christopher Haiman at USC/Norris.
To date, The Marni Fund has raised over $450,000, and for every research award issued by The Marni Fund, the participating cancer centers match the grants dollar-for-dollar with in-kind support, effectively doubling the value of each donation. This brings the value of support raised by Krav Maga Worldwide to $900,000 so far.
Please join our fight! Help us reach 1 MILLION DOLLARS in donations for the fight against cancer.
