FANWOOD, NJ - CKO Kickboxing in Fanwood hosted a fundraiser Nov. 16 for Tamaques Elementary School’s Parent Teach Organization. About 20 Tamaques parents and teachers plus Principal Michael Cullen participated in a 60-minute boxing class at the studio to raise over $800 for school programs.

The event included fifth-grade teacher Victor Alfonso participating in a "punch-out challenge,” throwing 116 punches in 30 seconds.

In addition to providing the facility and trainers, CKO contributed generously towards the fundraiser, according to Lisa Spirn of the PTO.
