Woods Charter School and Johnson's TaeKwonDo Academy working together for the World Wildlife Federation!The barrels from Woods Charter School have returned! The students from the Chapel Hill School have beautifully painted three 55 gallon drums that would have been otherwise thrown out as trash. Johnson's TaeKwonDo in Cary will now make them functional rainbarrels. Johnson's TaeKwonDo in Cary engages young people in the community in martial arts service projects. Johnson's Tae Kwon Do in Cary is convenient to Apex and Morrisville!
The Cary Arboretum and Yes Solar Solutions have already contributed barrels for the project. All rainbarrels will be auctioned off on April 24th, 2010 as a 2-part karate service project - "Run For their Lives /Where Does the Rain Go?".
Jessica Stober, 16 year old black belt and instructor at Johnson's TaeKwonDo Academy was encouraged by her instructors, Bryson and Melissa Johnson to take her skills out of the dojang and into the world! So, she considered her strong love and connection to animals, and organized the 1st annual Cary - 5k "Run for Their lives" at the Wake Med Soccer Park on April 24th.
In addition, Jessica Stober has organized the "Where Does the Rain Go? rainbarrel auction at the event.
All proceeds will go to the World Wildlife Federation, a charitable organization close to Jessica's heart.
