How many pushups can you do in 90 seconds? Whether it's nine or 90, you can strengthen your muscles for a good cause at Norwalk's Punch Kettlebell Gym , which is sponsoring a fundraising event for St. Jude Children Research Hospital.
"Workout for St. Jude" will power up on Saturday, March 19, from noon to 3 p.m., at the gym, 345 Main Ave., in Norwalk. The Charity Pushup Challenge will challenge participants to do as many pushups as they can in 90 seconds, and asks their friends, family and co-workers to donate 5 cents or $1 for each pushup they can do.
"Every child saved at St. Jude means children saved around the world -- a direct result of their research and treatment, which set the standard in treating deadly childhood diseases," says Katherine Bellantoni, Punch Kettlebell co-owner and coordinator of the event.
"We have about 30 participants (both male and female) signed up -- of all shapes, sizes and fitness levels," says Kat.
Funds will also be raised through sponsorship by those who do not wish to participate in the challenge itself, by registering here , or by stopping by Punch Kettlebell Gym.
