White Dragon to host 27th Annual “Kick for Cancer” helping to raise funds for local Hospice Programs

In 1990 Grandmaster Dr. Georganne Verigan started the annual Kick for Cancer Martial Arts Tournament. The purpose is to teach students how to give back to their community and to help them to realize that at sometime in our lives we all will know someone who will need the services provided by hospice. Each year proceeds of this tournament go to support local hospice programs like the one at Central New Hampshire VNA & Hospice.

“What a great event.” Says Brian Winslow, Director of Development for Central New Hampshire VNA & Hospice, “I was lucky enough to attend the Kick for Cancer last year and was surprised not just by the number of participants but also by the fact that competitors were coming from all over the country to be a part of this event.”
