Push-Ups Event Nets $4,000 for Wounded Warriors
Woodstock, GA – April 30, 2011
Firemen, Policemen and a contingent of Woodstock's “Regular Joe’s & Jane’s” competed in a Push-Ups for Charity event on Saturday, April 30 at the World of Gymnastics & Cheer facility on Bells Ferry Road to raise awareness and more than $4,000 in funds for Wounded Warrior Project.
Organized by STA-FIT/Fit Body Boot Camp owner Stacy Ward, the community fitness event challenged participants to perform as many push-ups as they could in 90 seconds , and to collect pledges and donations that directly support our Wounded soldiers.
“The Police and Fire Department really helped by their participation,” Ward said. “The kids were so excited that they were there to do push-ups with them.”
Ward said she is proud of her Fit Body Boot Campers, who helped raise more than $4,000 to help our troops in need. Boot Camper Eric Gurvin was the top male push-up performer, with an impressive 143 push-ups in 90 seconds and female participate Kathy Freund with 133!
WSBTV Channel 2 news anchor Justin Farmer also participated on the Regular Jane’s & Joe’s team, completing 105 push-ups in 90 seconds.
The event was sponsored by several local businesses and community leaders, including the Woodstock Fire Department, the Woodstock Police Department, Wal-Mart, Pure Taqueria, Right Wing Tavern, Revive Day Spa, Atlanta Martial Arts, Zest and Zing Cafe, Alex n Sis, World of Gymnastics, World Class Consignments, Chick-fil-A, Radiant Health Nutritional Store and STA-FIT Health Solutions & Fit Body Boot Camp.
Ward said she plans to host the event each year in Woodstock. Push-ups for Charity is a National Movement hosted by several fitness experts nationally to help raise awareness in our community with fitness, show support for our troops, and to make a difference in the lives of those who benefit from the Wounded Warrior Project.
