In honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, we created an opportunity to purchase a limited edition Dojo Fairfield t-shirt which included a $5 donation to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation (BCRF).  Our students raised a total of $50 for the BCRF during the month of October!

Although October is at a close, there is still an opportunity to purchase this t-shirt – which will still include a $5 donation, and will be available through the end of the year.
