MIT Sport Taekwondo Alumni Weekend Fundraiser

The Campaign

The MIT Sport Taekwondo Club Alumni Weekend takes place on the weekend of December 7th. This year, leading up to that weekend, we ask our alumni and friends to help us raise funds to renew our equipment and sponsor students for the 2019 National Collegiate Taekwondo Association tournament. If we reach at least half of our goal by Alumni Weekend, we'll do a live demo performance for all who attend!

 

Who We Are

The MIT Sport Taekwondo Club is a group dedicated to providing a place for taekwondo martial artists of all abilities to train together and become part of an exciting and close-knit community. The club has won multiple ECTC league and national championship titles in past years. Most recently, our team won 2nd place overall at the 2018 National Collegiate Taekwondo Championships.

 

Alumni Weekend

Our team hosts an annual alumni weekend in December to reunite alumni and introduce them to our current members. This year, we are asking for donations from alumni, current members, and all other friends of MIT Sport Taekwondo to support the team’s operation.

 

What We Need

Donations will contribute to the following:

 

Mats: Our team would like to purchase 100 new tile mats (total cost of $1700). These new mats will reduce risk of injury (broken mats can become a safety hazard) and improve our daily operation (old mats are difficult to set up and change up our footwork).

Gear: Our team would like to purchase ten sets of high quality gear (total cost of $1000) to provide new members with enhanced protection and to replace worn-out club gear. Improved gear will reduce risk of injury from clashes during sparring and improve tournament performance by providing adequate injury prevention.

Traveling to National Collegiate Taekwondo Association 2019: Our team will be competing at NCTA 2019. As an ongoing effort, our team would like to fund our new members so they can gain experience in the NCTA tournament and become more well-rounded athletes.
