A group of students and instructors of Eastern Oregon Family Taekwondo in Stanfield powered their way through bricks and boards to raise money for an Echo girl with a brain tumor.
The group presented a check for $4,534 to the family of Maddy Thomas to assist with medical care. The money was raised during a Feb. 3 benefit event.
In addition to the participants, Home Depot partnered with the event by donating the boards and bricks. Also, Erwin Watson of the Stanfield studio expressed appreciation for students from Loneys Taekwondo in Hermiston for their contributions.
