COLORADO SPRINGS — People were breaking boards for an important cause Saturday in Colorado Springs at the U.S Taekwondo Center's annual "Break-A-Thon."

This year, the organization is hoping to raise $50,000 for Children's Hospital Colorado, with most of that money coming from the Break-A-Thon.

The money raised this year will go to the new Children's Hospital in Colorado Springs.

"What we're trying to teach all the kids and students is that if everyone does a little bit together, we can make a huge impact for our community," U.S. Taekwondo Center President and CEO, Jay Lee said.

The organization raised money through other means as well, including a silent auction, a wine pull, and a balloon pop.
