Tiger-Rock Martial Arts of Kingwood and Senior Master Sandy Jordan have partnered with nonprofit Volunteers for Animal Protection (VAP), a no-kill shelter located in the Kingwood/Humble Area. They take in unwanted, abused and stray animals, mostly cats and dogs. They spay/neuter and rehabilitate them so they can find their forever home.
Tiger-Rock hosted a board break-a-thon as a fundraiser for VAP Friday, Sept. 13. This fundraiser was called "Project Hope." Hope is a dog who is about 1 and 1/2 years old and is very sweet and gentle. When Hope was about 8 weeks old she was run over by a car and her hips were crushed; they healed incorrectly and need to be corrected. 100% of the proceeds of the fundraiser are going toward the surgery needed to help heal Hope.
The event raised $7,000 for Project Hope. The students of Tiger-Rock Martial Arts went out and got pledges to break the boards. Over 1,200 boards were broken within two hours. These students ranged between 4-15 years old. Hope can now have her much-needed surgery.
