2017 Sponsorship Drive

The Kickstart Kids Foundation teaches Character through Karate in middle and high schools in Texas.

Through support of donors like yourself, a complete martial arts program (classes, tournaments, belt ceremonies, special events and summer school) is offered to students as an alternative to PE for a very low fee. The foundation relies on school fees, fundraisers, and donations to continue the program.

Kickstart Kids students and their families are participating in a state-wide Sponsorship Drive January 23 – February 3, 2017. They are selling a custom designed, 100% cotton t-shirt featuring the values of Kickstart Kids. The goal is for each student to sell 5 shirts. The shirts are $15 each.

Thank you for your support.


Pat Kaufman – Executive Director – Kickstart Kids
