The event will kick off at 9:00AM with a singing of our national anthem, heat announcements and a salute to the nation’s veterans with a moment of silence.
“We are so excited to host this event for the 2nd year in a row. My grandfather was a career Marine serving in World War II and many other campaigns, passing earlier this year. We will be honoring him and all veterans who sacrifice everything to keep us safe and protect our freedoms that we usually take for granted. This is a way to say thank you!” said Tommy Baker, Owner & Director Of Training for SISU.
Through the 5th Annual Pushups for Charity, Americans throughout the country will show their support of the 1.4 million men and women who are currently serving by doing as many pushups as they can in 90 seconds. Pushups for Charity’s goal is to have Americans complete 1.4 million pushups and raise $1 million to serve troops through the Boot Campaign, which helps veterans by providing jobs, housing, education, wellness, urgent assistance and family support. In past years, Pushups for Charity has raised more than $600,000 for the Boot Campaign.
Devote 90 seconds to pushups and you will make a life-changing impact on the lives of those who bravely serve our country. Join the SISU Elite Fitness Pushups for Charity team here: http://tinyurl.com/lbnf3fa.
