CKO Kickboxing Charlotte prides itself on treating each member like family.  And on Saturday, September 26th, about 50 of those family members became a part of Claire’s Army.  The fitness kickboxing gym held its quarterly member appreciation event, which included a live DJ, a raffle, donations for a great T-shirt and a challenging 90-minute class, which I actually took part in.  It kicked my butt… in the best possible way.  And all the proceeds from the event came directly to Claire’s Army, raising a total of $1,000.  Owners Danny and Amy Leon wanted to honor the fact that September was Childhood Cancer Awareness Month and through some research came upon us.  They saw what we’re doing and thought it was a perfect fit for their wish to find an organization making a direct impact on families and children.

We couldn’t be more excited that CKO Kickboxing Charlotte is now a permanent sponsor and we look forward to developing our partnership to help families who are fighting the good fight every day.

CKO Kickboxing Charlotte is located at 5350 Docia Crossing Rd. in the University area of Charlotte.  To learn more, check out and on Facebook at CKO Kickboxing Charlotte.
