"The Battle of the Instructors 2021"

The Uplevel Foundation presents: "The Battle of the Instructors 2021 Fundraiser" 

The History of the Battle: Last year in 2020 at the "Battle of the Wegerts" with your HELP we raised $2,500 for 4 charities: Equal Justice Initiative, Families Forward, City of Promise, and The Haven Charlottesville, VA. We had a lot of community engagement and a lot of fun, so we decided to do it again. 

Each UpLevel MA school will select one of three causes to represent. Whichever instructors WIN the battle, the cause they are representing will get 50% of the fundraised money.  2nd place team will get 30% , and 3rd place will get 20%. 100% of the proceeds will go directly towards charity.

This year our fundraising goal is $10,000. When we have raised $5,000 for this effort, Mr. & Mrs. Sam Wegert will make a personal donation of $2,500 towards this fundraiser effort.

Will you DONATE to see your instructors battle for which noble cause get's the most money? Learn more about our three causes below:

1) Karate Scholarships: The Uplevel Foundation provides scholarships to offset the costs for a student and/or a family to train in Martial Arts, for those who are otherwise are unable to afford or access it. We believe that a lack of resources should not be a barrier for children and families to have access to programs like martial arts that brings families together, promotes physical fitness and builds character. We currently support children at our Uplevel MA schools and in areas we do not have schools. Through each scholarship, Uplevel instructors do their part by discounting the programs cost by 50% and The Uplevel Foundation covers the other 50%.  After the respective school does their part to discount the program, the remaining cost for a student to earn their black belt through this scholarship is $3,150 or $525 for the basic program. Go to www.uplevelfoundation.org to learn more.

2) 1Life Fully Lived: 1Life provides real life, practical tools using their 2-step approach (CORE4 + the fulfillment triangle) aka "1Life Roadmaps" to educate youth in a safe, interactive, educational 1 day LIVE experience! The cost is $150 per student to go through the interactive 1Life Roadmap experience in Charlotte NC. Go to www.1lifefullylived.org to learn more.

3) World Central Kitchen (Haiti): Following the devastating events that occurred on August 24th 2021, we are partnering with World Central Kitchen to assist in feeding the many lives impacted by the 7.2 earthquake that hit the Sound part of Haiti.
