Martial Artists Run Marathon as Fundraiser for Children and Veteran's Charity 

Local Phoenix martial artists are helping in the fight against Child abuse and support Veterans welcome home at Wisconsin Marathon May 7.

Martial artist masters USA Martial Arts Phoenix AZ and Antioch Illinois will run at the Wisconsin Marathon on May 7th to benefit various charitable efforts including child safety, abduction prevention, as well as a Veterans program. All of the proceeds from the event will go to support the non-profit The Black Belt Society.

All involved are encouraged to raise money for the Black Belt Society through sponsorship, and those donations will be directly given to help the Black Belt Society and it's volunteer member Black Belt Instructors to have the resources they need to reach a larger audience with their life saving educational programs.

Masters Brian Van Patten of Salem Wisconsin and John Nottingham of Scottsdale Arizona will both be running the marathon together.  They started martial arts together over 25 years ago and have both since earned the title "Master" and taught at their own USA Martial Arts schools.

“We believe in leading by example so the Master Instructors will come together in the spirit of community, sharing and charity,” said Nottingham, “character traits essential to USA Martial Arts.”

They will be running 26.2 miles in Kenosha Wisconsin on May 7, 2011.

“We as martial artists have an opportunity to help those who are in need and give back to our communities,” said Nottingham, who instructs at the USA Martial Arts Phoenix Arizona. “What a great opportunity to practice the true meaning of the martial arts and have fun doing it.”
