Kids Helping Kids, Neighbors Helping Neighbors

This coming Saturday, March 24, is the annual Battle of Maine Mixed Martial Arts Championships at Thomas College.

This is one of our favorite fundraising events of the year. Mark Huard and his incredible team from Huard’s Ju-Jitsu in Fairfield go above and beyond to encourage students to give back to the local community, truly living by Margaret Mead’s words, “Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; it’s the only thing that ever has.”

Many of his students and participants are not only busy practicing and focusing on the competition, but they are also raising funds for EMHS Foundation Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. We’re so thankful for their support, and it’s always so inspiring to see kids helping kids, and neighbors helping neighbors – it’s one of the reasons we love calling Maine home!
