Thirty-five students of Mount Olive Eagle Tae Kwon Do School participated in the school's first annual Kick-A-Thon, which recently took place at the A&P Plaza parking lot in Mount Olive.
On Saturday, July 12, the students of Mount Olive Eagle Tae Kwon Do School got together for their first annual Kick-A-Thon, which took place at the A&P Plaza parking lot in Mount Olive, where teh school is located. The 35 participants, as young as three years of age, gave their best kicks to benefit D.A.R.E. of Mount Olive. Grand Master Lee along with instructors, Carolann Oriani and Bonnie Friscino, led the students through a series of demonstrations as well as motivated them to do their best.

Representing D.A.R.E., the organization for which the children so eagerly volunteered, were Officer Brian Braikovich and Officer Kevin Hyland of the Mt. Olive Township Police.The children were most amused by the patrol car and the D.A.R.E. award-winning vehicle brought by the officers. Officers Braikovich and Hyland handed out their cards and other goodies to the children and youngsters who were allowed to freely explore the patrol cars.

Mount Olive Eagle Tae Kwon Do School is headed by Grand Master Kwang Lee, a 9th degree black belt, one of the highest ranking masters in the World Tae Kwon Do Federation.

Master Lee, who just received his doctorate in Family Counseling, educates students not only in Martial Arts but to have confidence, help others and to work together to strengthen the community.

The school's motto is "Love and Modesty." Grand Master Lee's philosophy is that much more can be accomplished by working as a group and that is precisely why the Kick-A-Thon was organized.

The participants, who in total collected the amount of $1,471.70 for the D.A.R.E. Organization, were: Dante Dunston, Kira Oriani, Tori Burd, JB Hartman, Caitlin Segarra, Chris Kohaut, Jazmyn Jacques, Scott Yurovchak, Michael Rodriguez, MaKenna Oriani, Kristen Yurovchack, Matthew Tong, Joseph Valentino, Bobby Trinneer, Danato Salisbury, Gage Plumb, Jonathan Farkas, Nick Caro, Alanna Friscino, Dakota Palmer, David Jacques, Victoria Valentino, Stephen Dunston, Alexis Salisbury, Sasah Rodriguez, Steven Valentino, Michelle Lebo, Claire Thant, Ricky Casapulla, Daina Alvarez, Gary Oriani, Nikki Oriani, Kirsten Gerr, Bonnie Friscino and Carolann Oriani. The students kicked a combined total of 2,759 kicks.

At the conclusion of the activities, Master Lee rewarded each student with a medal for their partaking and much appreciated help.
