On September 26, we challenged you to test your limits with 90 seconds of pushups and you accepted. Not only did you accept the challenge, but 73 of you took it on with enthusiasm and threw down…. not only an incredible number of pushups (3,781 to be exact), but also an incredible amount of money – $25,386 to allow The FitWit Foundation to continue their mission of providing free fitness programs that build strength and develop character in youth who need it most. Each year we continue to be amazed by the energy participants bring to the event and to raising money to support our mission. We are incredibly thankful to have such amazing supporters.
Congratulations to our top ten fundraisers: Joe Gotshall who raised $1,795; Matt Benard who raised $1,270; Maggie McClatchey who raised $1,007; Elizabeth Hornor who raised $843; Jayme Bartlett who raised $795; Beth Cavalier who raised $785; Beth Ann Clanin who raised $748; Josh Guerrieri who raised $674; Gerrell Sterling who raised $636; and Rebecca Dahl who raised $595.
Pushup Throwdown was unique this year as it was a part Atlanta Contact Point’s Showcase event at Pullman Yard, which featured multiple organizations who are working to spread health and fitness to the community. The event would not have been such a success without the effort and energy our planning committee put contributed. This year’s Pushup Throwdown Committee included: Allison Miller, Beth Cavalier, Josh Guerrieri, Kathleen Lorey, Mary Claire Leverett, and Maxwell Moody.
The Pushup Throwdown, in it’s third year, continues to be the biggest fundraiser for The FitWit Foundation. We are excited for the future of The FitWit Foundation and the number of students who’s lives will be empowered through our program.
