Push Ups For Charity – Coppell, TX Event at Coppell High School for Wounded Warrior Project

blog

Apr 11

Coppell, Texas – During the months of March and April, 100 health clubs, personal training studios and fitness boot camps have  held Pushups for Charity events across the nation involving thousands of participants and generating thousands of dollars each in donations to support our wounded warriors.  When the dust settles, they hope to collectively raise nearly $500,000 for the Wounded Warrior Project and kick-start a mini fitness revolution at the same time.

 The local Pushups for Charity event in Coppell was held on  April 10th at Coppell High School.  “Our goal was two-fold,” explains Brad Linder, owner of Get You In Shape, the Coppell Boot Camp and Fitness Service Provider running the Pushups for Charity event here in Coppell, “we wanted to show our support for the wounded warriors who have sacrificed so much for our freedom and security, and we wanted to engage our local community in a fun way to get fit.”

To date, the Push Ups For Charity Coppell team has been able to raise over $10,742.50 (it may be more as we have sent more checks to the Wounded Warrior Project). The Team goal was $7,500 so everyone who sponsored and participated exceeded the goal for the team. You can still make a donation if you would like.  If you would like to make a donation to the Wounded Warrior Project (501 C -tax deductable), go to http://WWPProudSupporter.kintera.org/pushupsforcharitycoppell.  We thank all those who participated and all those who sposored someone participating. We could not have done it without great people like you who have helped make this event a success.
