      Fight for Kids helping at risk children

      Several churches hosted the first ever Fight for the Kids at the Palmetto Athletic Center.

      LEXINGTON, SC (WACH)--Children from around the Midlands got into a fight Saturday, but all in the name of charity.

      Several churches hosted the first ever Fight for the Kids at the Palmetto Athletic Center. Hundreds of kids got to compete in different competitions such as martial arts, obstacle courses, rope pull, and trampolines from the free event.

      Two martial artists also attempted to break a world record for most rounds fought by sparring for 150 consecutive rounds.

      Coordinator Kasandra Morris said 100% of the proceeds from donations are going to the Nancy K. Perry Children's Home; a non-profit shelter for at-risk children.

      "It is a very specific children's shelter," Morris said. "It is not just for orphans. They are all at risk children from really bad households. We think it is very important that children in the area come together for a purpose."

      The shelter needs monetary, clothing, and household item donations. To help, click here.
