Teaming up with Anatomy Fitness for the third year in a row, the foundation is holding their annual #HourPushUpChallenge to raise awareness and funds to grant wishes for children with critical illnesses in Miami, Florida. Prior to the event, participants can collect monetary pledges that will be donated on a per-pushup basis. If you’re not interested in doing pushups for an entire hour but still want to participate, you can donate to their website.
“We are thrilled to partner with Make-A-Wish for the third year in a row for this very special cause,” said Marc Megna, co-owner of Anatomy. “At Anatomy, culture is everything, and this is an amazing opportunity to use our fitness goals to make dreams come true. We can’t wait to push past our goals again this year.”
