I am running this year in respect and memory to my Sifu at Jow Ga Kung Fu Academy, Australia, who recently passed away after battling with Mantle Cell Lymphoma.
I will be running this event in a FULL ON Single Person Lion Dance costume!! I have confirmed that I can get a red and Gold colour scheme for it, and will be wearing the Jow Ga banner as a 'cape' to remember Sifu Randy Sullivan Bennett.
Sifu Randy Sullivan Bennett was (and always will be) an amazing person who brought so much energy and vibrancy into the world. He was a teacher, mentor, Kung Fu Master, and good friend... Every time I practice Kung Fu I will feel his energy there watching over us all (and silently correcting our forms)!
I also have another good friend of mine (Shawna) who has been battling Breast Cancer over in USA over the last year... And in some amazingly good news recently, the pathology report from her recent surgery found no cancer in the tumor and lymph nodes they removed! Yay Shawna!
I want to be able to anything I possibly can to help the fight against cancer, and to help people who have cancer in any possible way!
