CKO Kickboxing Seattle Announces Fall Fundraiser

Industry: Fundraising

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.
