Kootenay Tae Kwon Do is raising money to send 21 of its athletes to the World Cup in Jamaica, Aug. 26-30, 2014.

Master Saran says the competitors, who range in age from 12-50, will be working hard all through the summer, not just to train, but also to raise the funds for the trip.

A recent $500 donation from the New to You, plus a spaghetti supper and raffle in January, will help build that fund.

Judy Lindley, New to You manager, says two of Master Saran’s athletes have been volunteering their time in the shop and are good workers. Kyle Angers, 13, and Cailey-Jo DeGagne, 12, help out when they can, such as Fridays or Mondays when school is not in session. They both are going to Jamaica.
