This is officially my 100th post. Not sure if that is good bad, but the dashboard page on blogger tells me it is so. NBC30 posted this small press blurb:
Man Plans To Do 4,000 Push-Ups For Cancer
POSTED: 7:56 am EDT May 2, 2008
UPDATED: 8:16 am EDT May 2, 2008

A group of people training hard for the Relay For Life call themselves Abrahams Cancer Crusaders.
Russell Leonard is a member of the team and has been touched by cancer in many ways. His wife is a two-time survivor and he lost a friend and a co-worker to the disease.
Now, his friend who he works out with every day at the gym has been diagnosed with lymphoma.

To raise money, Leonard plans on doing 4,000 push-ups at the American Cancer Society's Relay For Life.
For each pushup he completes within a four-hour span, his company will donate $2.

Good on you Leonard. Hope you hit the 4000 mark in under 4 hours. Kind of gives a guy an idea or two?


Jack Bravo said... should totally start a fundraising "push ups" rally for the Ronald McDonald house. Kids would love to do it too, and it'd get 'em in shape. Instead of raising money for each mile they run, they can do for each push up. :)
