The Story

Fellow Americans 

You all know what happened in Puerto Rico during Hurricane Maria. Our fellow Americans need our support.  Let's all help them by lifting ourselves up with push-ups.  I challenge each of you to do as many push-ups as you can in 1 day and donate a 1$, or whatever you choose to pledge for every push-up you complete.  Join me and the entire fitness industry in doing 1 million push-ups to help rebuild and raise up the people of Puerto Rico. I have challenged trainers and fitness professionals all over the country to motivate their clients to give an extra hand to the people of Puerto Rico.

All of your donations will go to a nonprofit called International Relief Teams dedicated to helping the people of Puerto Rico.

I have vetted this organization, and almost 99% of the money they bring in goes to helping others.  They have been doing this for almost 30 years.  More information can be found about them at www.irteams.org.
Please spread the word to anyone you know who might be able to help grow this fundraiser.  I know so many of you may have already donated to hurricane relief this year.  If so, please help us by promoting our cause in your gyms, schools, athletic teams, and places of worship. 
Thank you in advance,
Paul and Marcie Fezza

Huge Thanks to The Meakem Group Richmond Financial for their generous support to our cause and especially to Brian and Tommy Richmond for all the pushups they completed.
I wanted to share a little bit more about where your donations are going and how they are being used.  www.irteams.org is a first class charity doing great things all over the world.  Below is some extra details about their hurricane Maria efforts.
