CHL's First Annual 5K Walk for Peace


The weather was perfect for CHL's First Annual Walk for Peace. Sponsored by Valley Anesthesia, MOGA, Steve's Ortho group, Physiotherapy, Hallier Law
Firm, and AMOMI, around 100 people participated on this beautiful day in Scottsdale. Everyone had a great time walking around the park, visiting with friends, sharing breakfast, and playing on the jungle gym.

24 Hour Fitness
Starting Saturday, December 18, we will be starting classes at a new location, 24 Hour Fitness at 13220 North Scottsdale Road. There will be an orientation class for all students on Saturday, December 11 at 3pm. Everyone should attend this session where we will be oriented to their procedures. We will not be having Karate after orientation so you may wear regular street clothes. There are two forms that must be filled out in advance and turned in at the orientation in order to attend classes.
