Local kickboxing class raising money for breast cancer research, teaching self-defense


STATE COLLEGE, Pa. (WTAJ) — Lombard MMA, located in downtown State College, held their third annual Box 4 Boobs, which raises money for Breast Cancer Research.

Lombard MMA teamed up with Relay for Life and took five dollar donations that goes to the American Caner Society. However, donations were not required for the kick boxing classes today, which started at 12:10 today, with the last class starting at 7:10.

Brittney Wineland, Marketing Director of Lombard MMA, says the class not only is supporting for a great cause, but emphasizes the importance of self-defense.

“I believe not only women, but everybody should have some sort of self-defense, and in today’s world you never know what’s going to happen, and you always want to be prepared.”
