Description:
What DO you push for? We push to get fit, have fun and make a difference. Pushups for Charity is an alliance of many of the world's most respected fitness professionals who have come together to support charities, by providing free fitness coaching and exercise programming to all who participate in a Pushups for Charity event, or sponsor someone participating. This year, we have decided to support our Central Texas neighbors in West, TX who were devastated by an explosion at a fertilizer plant on April 17, 2013. Please join us to raise money to help our friends and families in West rebuild! The three local foundations Cooper, Rapoport, and Waco have coordinated together to establish The West, Texas Disaster Relief Efforts Fund, to be housed at Waco Foundation. This fund is for the sole benefit of the victims and relief efforts of the West, Texas fertilizer plant explosion that took place on Wednesday evening, April 17. The Foundations are in the process of communicating with City of West officials to determine an appropriate West representative that can advise the allocation of resources based on the community’s highest needs. The Rapoport Foundation has made a lead gift of $20,000 to the fund in order to encourage the Waco community to be the leading contributors in support of our neighbors in West. Event will be at Titan Fitness 201-B N. Hewitt Dr. Hewitt Tx 76643 on May 18th at 9am! Call 254-666-6016 for more info
