St. Croix native and President and CEO of Lifeline Pharmaceuticals Rick Nielsen has donated $5,000 to the St. Croix Boys and Girls Club branch of the Korean Martial Arts Academy to help the youths travel to Puerto Rico for the Puerto Rico International Taekwondo Championships.
On a recent trip to Miami where Lifeline Pharmaceuticals is located, Nielsen was approached by grandmaster Richard Mitchell of the Korean Martial Arts Academy and told about the difficulty in getting donations to send the young athletes to Puerto Rico to compete in one of the largest tournaments in the Caribbean, "Los Ed Olimpicos."
