SOUTHFIELD, Mich., May 17, 2013––Southfield-based Jaffe Raitt Heuer & Weiss, P.C. recently sponsored a fundraising event to benefit Kids Kicking Cancer, helping to raise over $13,000 for the nationally recognized nonprofit organization. Jaffe attorney Deborah Rubin coordinated the event in partnership with Kids Kicking Cancer founder, Rabbi Elimelech Goldberg and the Sports Club of West Bloomfield.
Over 100 children participated in the event, held at The Sports Club of West Bloomfield. Each child was asked to solicit donations for participating in a “sports-a-thon” which included gymnastics, tennis and martial arts. In addition to these activities, the event featured its first-ever family 5k walk/run, a martial arts demonstration from the students of Kids Kicking Cancer, entertainment, food and prizes.
Kids Kicking Cancer was founded in metro Detroit and helps children manage the stress and pain of their disease and treatments through personalized coaching instructed by black belt martial artists. These children achieve power, peace and purpose by teaching their deep breathing techniques to others to help them reduce stress.
“It is an honor to work for a firm that is so supportive of local charitable organizations and this event was no exception,” said Rubin. “With Jaffe’s support, we were able to sponsor an amazing event, and raise significant funds, which ultimately will help ease the pain of very sick children while empowering them to heal physically, spiritually and emotionally.”
