 THE National Capital District Taekwondo Association in conjunction with Stones Taekwondo Academy will embark on a major fundraising drive on November 16.

This is to raise funds for its “Stay Strong – Kick Drugs Out Of PNG” programme and its martial arts projects in NCD and Central province.

Programme coordinator Master Jamuga Stone (pictured) said to drive this message to the younger generation they need funds. 

The 5,000 board breaking will be a major fundraiser.

To kick start the 5,000 boards NCD Taekwondo and Stone’s Taekwondo will provide 50 students from its Young Warriors programme to execute this martial arts spectacle.

Kids as young as 12 will be part of the 5,000 kick and punch spectacle.

Stone appealed to the corporate sector, government agencies, NCDC, business houses and private citizens to sponsor this meaningful fundraiser for its community initiative. Stone said every board kicked and punched broken will raise K15. 

Companies and individuals are encouraged to be at the venue to witness the 5,000 boards smashed and broken. 

It is anticipated that this event will raise K75,000.

“Taekwondo is the driving force behind the “Stay Strong – Kick Drugs Out Of PNG” programme. Young Warriors will be the catalysts to address the ever growing use of illicit drugs like marijuana and homebrew liquor,” he said. 

“This will be a special day so we are looking for a major sponsor for this event. The National Narcotics Bureau will be there to give information out on drugs.
