CKO Kickboxing Seattle Announces Fall Fundraiser
Event will support Ahmie Njie’s mom and sister
SEATTLE, WASHINGTON (PRUnderground) November 5th, 2015
Ahmie Njie lost her life this summer at the age of 15. She was a victim of Desmoplastic Small Round Cell Tumors (DSRCT). This fall, CKO Kickboxing Seattle is giving back to Njie’s mother and sister with a special fundraiser.
“On the day I first met Ahmie, I met a shy, quiet child. She was reserved, but always watching. She would smile, with somehow knowing. After a while I learned that she was wiser than most adults my age,” said the CKO Kickboxing Seattle team.
Njie’s mother, Gienna, is a single mother to a younger daughter, Aishah, and the transition through grief and normalcy over the last several months have been difficult. CKO Kickboxing Seattle wants to give back to these amazing ladies with a fundraiser.
CKO Kickboxing Seattle’s team shares, “Our government only offers 4% of federal tax money to researching childhood cancer. Where does that leave the parents in our community when they have to say goodbye to a child they have birthed, raised, cried with, studied with, or held when they were sad, happy, or vomiting from chemotherapy?”
On November 7, 2015, at 8:00am at CKO Kickboxing Seattle, people are invited to come take part in a fundraiser. Bags are $30, and the team invited people to come take a swing for cancer. The event will last for 90 minutes.
Those who aren’t able to attend can donate by texting “Ahmie” to 843-606-5995.
