Karate students help CF fund

April 19, 2008

Albany--Karate Students of all ranks brought their fight to Albany on Saturday.

Brunson Martial Arts held a spar-a-thon from 9 to 5 to help raise money for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation.

Head instructor Graylon Brenson Said he came up with the idea after one of his students was diagnosed with the disease.

"These kids that have this they go through so much, you know everything It's a fight for them this is the least that we can do to give back. He's dedicated himself to studying martial arts for over four years and it's the least I can do." Said Brenson.

There was no official word on how much money was raised.

Brenson will donate all funds to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation on April 26th, at Riverfront park, where the foundation will hold it's Strides Walk to raise more money to find a cure for Cystic Fibrosis.
