2018 Capoeira Arts Foundation Roda-thon

Enriching lives through Capoeira Learn More

Hi Friends and Family, 

I am partnering with the Capoeira Arts Foundation and raising money for the 2018 Capoeira Arts Foundation Roda-thon and I would love your support!

You may have seen me reach out in years' past regarding our yearly roda-thon, as capoeira has been and is a big part of my life for many years now.  This year is special, as the United Capoeira Association (UCA) needs our help to keep their doors open, so I'm reaching out to you for assistance (more details on this cause can be found below). 

Across the country, capoeiristas are doing capoeira to raise money and I am one of them.  You are welcome to come support me in person during our own roda-thon at our Denver academy on October 5th!  It would be great to see you there!!   

I sincerely appreciate your support for this fundraiser and my goal. You can donate now and by hitting “Give Now” on the upper right. You can give with any major credit card and it only takes 30 seconds. 

I appreciate it so very much and sincerely thank you for joining me!

A few more details:  The capoeira school, that is our parent school, and led by the internationally inspiring Mestre Acordeon, in is in danger of having to close it's doors. The UCA Berkeley school, aka Capoeira Arts Foundation - non-profit 501(c)(3), recently found out that a long standing annual grant of $60,000 would be moving in a new direction and as such left this capoeira home, and hub for myself and so many other capoeiristas, in a very difficult situation. This grant was a major part of keeping the doors open and allowing the school's non-profit arm to offer programs for children here in our community and abroad in Brazil (such as Projecto Kirumure) to find success. It also provided a firm base to fund a host of other valuable capoeira related projects. With the loss of this grant, UCA Berkeley is scrambling to reorganize and consolidate their priorities in order to be able to continue their day to day activities and keep their doors open. Will you help me support this iconic Capoeira school?
