– In April, Coppell hosted The Pushups For Charity Challenge that put the Coppell Fire, Coppell Police against the regular average Joe’s and Jane’s in the Coppell area. This was a national event being held during the month of April to help raise local awareness for fitness and to raise money for wounded warriors. Former President George H.W. Bush encouraged folks to participate in this great event.

Although the Coppell Police Department won the pushup challenge, each team came together to help raise money for the Wounded Warrior Project. “A total of $13,500 has been raised to date, which was $1,000 over our 2011 goal and over $2,500 more than we were able to raise in 2010,” said Brad Linder, owner of Get You In Shape, the Coppell Boot Camp and fitness business who ran 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 want to engage our local community in a fun way to get fit.

“The Police Department enjoyed the event and being able to team up with the Fire Department and citizens of Coppell,” Captain Tony Pletcher of the Police Department said of this event. “This event was for a great cause and we wanted to show our support for the Wounded Soldiers Project and honor soldiers that have been wounded defending our country.”

Complete event information is available at www.PushupsForCharityCoppell.com . You can still help with a small donation.

“There’s no denying that when folks get engaged in positive and rewarding activities like charity and fitness, they feel better, perform better and frankly, are generally kinder and more enjoyable to be around!  This is one thing we can do to positively impact our town and our country,” says Linder.
