Henry needs your help! World Games 2014!

PLEASE SUPPORT HENRY RHODES, MY "GENTLE GIANT".

From Kyoshi Donna Judge:
As many of you know, 6 years ago I became the Southeast Coach for the U.S. Martial Arts Team for the World Games (WMAG). There are many Martial Arts organizations that host “World Game” tournaments, however as of May 2014, the WMAG organization we participate in is the ONLY World Games the International Olympic Committee (IOC) has decided to give patronage and support.
The IOC's sponsorship of the Games is allowing us to use The Richmond Olympic Oval in Richmond, Canada for this year’s Games! This is the first time in history the IOC has given their support to an all styles Martial Arts event. They will have representatives at the Games to gauge its success. In addition, the medals for the World Games have been designed by the same artist who designed the Canadian Winter Olympics medals! We hope this World Games will prove to the IOC that all Martial Arts deserve to be permanent parts of their future events, and eventually the Olympic Games. 

About Henry:
Some refer to him as the Beast. I call him my Gentle Giant.
Henry is 24 years old. He is 6’3”, weighs in at 240lbs, and he is nothing but muscle. Two years ago at the 2012 games, Henry took Gold in continuous fighting and Silver in point fighting. Due to his humble character, Henry became one of the event’s favorites with U.S. competitors and other Country's competitors cheering him on! 
Henry is putting himself through college while working & living at home  to help take care of his mother and sister, and training very hard to be the best athlete possible so he can represent his country with honor. Henry is a good man and a good Martial Artist.
At this point, Henry is in danger of not being able to go to the Games due to lack of funds. That is why I am asking for your help. I believe this is the last stepping stone to get all Martial Arts into the Olympics as many of us have been waiting for this for a long time.
Please help him with this journey. Make a donation today!!! All donations, no matter what amount, will be greatly appreciated.
