The Bearskin Fitness Center, 1 Turtle Drive in Wyandotte, will be hosting a Pushups for Charity event June 4 at 5 p.m. in the gym.
Pushups for Charity is an annual nationwide event that raises awareness of the challenges military service members and veterans face, and raises money to support their unique needs – this year the plan is to give 500 grants to deserving hero families.
Every person can change a life in 90 seconds by doing pushups and making a donation. It doesn’t matter how many pushups every person can do, but everyone can do their part to support America’s heroes. Every pushup brings awareness to military struggles resulting from their service and sacrifice, and every dollar raised helps the Boot Campaign bridge the gap between government programs designed to care for our military and the challenges of life during and post-service.
The Bearskin Fitness Center will have a computer set up so participants can go online and make the donation when they arrive or they can go on the Pushups for Charity website, http://pushupsforcharity.com/index.html, and find Bearskin Fitness Center as a host team and donate. If participants donate $25 or more, they will receive a T-shirt in the mail.
