By Rochelle Brenner Action Karate Mt. Airy was honored as a small business through a KKR/Hello Alice grant and year-long mentor-ship.
The pandemic has put our small business into a dogfight. We got through two city-mandated closures in 2020 and adjusted our curriculum to manage masks and social distancing and Zoom. Refusing to give up on our students and ambition, we applied for grants to help us get through. We are so thankful to the grant reviewers that saw the potential for what we are building and believed in our students.
