February 15th-2015 Orange County Shorinji Kempo branch students lead by example with their action!! Their lives endow the best part of Ken Zen Ichi Nyo (Training both the body and mind to produce a well-balanced individual). Through the help of Mark and Michelle of ABETTERWORLD RUNNING, 62 students and parents ran a 5Km/10Km today at Sunset Beach California. This was an Orange County Shorinji Kempo branch sponsored charity event where we raised $1,077 for St. Jude’s Children Hospital for cancer. Half for one’s own happiness, and half for the happiness of others. To be inspired by Shorinji Kempo is great! To inspire others to be better is GREATER!!!! The pictures speak for themselves…
All students received a Shorinji Kempo medal for finishing their run. The top 3 students received a Shorinji Kempo T-shirt.
5km Childrens Class, top three were: Claire T., Christine D., Brandon D.
5km Adult Class, top three were: Keaton B., Songvy N., Connor H.
10km Adult Class, top 3 were Mike H., Justin N. and Gaganjyot A.
