DK Fitness Arts Taekwondo is hosting its first "Board Break-A-Thon" named "Break-4-Vets."

The event will be held from 2 to 4 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 16, at 1714 E. Northwest Hwy. in Arlington Heights.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                       
 

Participants will break hundreds of boards within the two-hour period.

The "Board Break-A-Thon" event benefits the Wounded Warrior Project, which is a nonprofit 501 organization that is a charity and veterans service organization offering a variety of programs, services and events for wounded veterans of the military actions following Sept. 11, 2001. The Foundation strives to honor and empower wounded veterans, their families and caregivers.

The family-friendly event will feature an opening ceremony with demonstrations, posting of colors by local Boy Scouts and is open to the public. Donations will be taken on premises with students being available to instruct and assist donors in breaking boards.
