|Who We Are?|
St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital is one of the world’s premier centers for research and treatment for pediatric cancer and other catastrophic childhood diseases. ALSAC is the fund raising organization of St. Jude. No child is ever denied treatment because of the family's inability to pay. St. Jude is the only pediatric cancer research center where families never pay for treatment not covered by insurance. “The survival rate for the most common form of childhood cancer, acute lymphoblastic leukemia, has risen from just 4 percent in 1962 to 94 percent today”.
Shaolin Kung Fu Academy opened in 1998. The School leaded by Master Shi Xing Hao provides
kung fu, lion dance and tai chi classes as well as demonstrations around Houston and the surrounding areas in Texas. Our students compete regionally and nationally for forms medal. Today, kung fu knows a growing popularity thanks to media and schools like ours. But kung fu is more than a martial art. Based on Buddhist philosophy, Shaolin values include tolerance, righteousness, respect and a sense for community. That’s why it sounds logical to us to put our art at the service of a great cause that is St. Jude Hospital.
Our mission is to raise funds for St. Jude Research Hospital. We intend to do so by organizing a
Kung Fu, Lion Dance and Tai Chi performance on Sunday, March 29th 2009 (2:00p.m.-4:00p.m.) at the Chinese Culture Center, 10303 Westoffice Drive, Houston, TX 77042. Thanks to this show, we will share the rich Chinese inheritance and promote Shaolin tradition while fighting for a great cause.
How can you help?
As an individual, you can purchase tickets for the performance ($10/ticket or VIP ticket at $100/ticket).
As a company, you can become one of our proud sponsors. If you contribute US $500 or more, your logo will be displayed on our posters and your company will be cited during the show.
Nobody can change the world on his/her own, but everyone can make a difference by getting involved in his/her community. As a community, it is our way to show that sad diseases can be fought with fun and enthusiasm. Are you ready to help us?
