Rebel Fit USA is hosting an official Pushups For Charity event on July 9 at their new studio at 2088 Daniel Stuart Square, Woodbridge, VA. The event is part of the annual nationwide Boot Campaign Pushups For Charity fundraising initiative, which kicks off on Armed Forces Day, May 21, and runs through Veterans Day, Nov. 11.
Pushups For Charity increases awareness of the challenges military service members and veterans face, and raises money to support their unique needs. The annual campaign hopes to raise $1 million in 2016 through hundreds of events all summer long like this one in Woodbridge, VA which would fund more than 500 individual grants to support veterans, service members, and their families. Boot Campaign assistance grants help veterans with housing, career and education expenses, and PTSD/TBI treatment and are available to military families of all generations.
“What do you push for?” That is the question Boot Campaign will be encouraging participants around the country to answer as they “push” against friends, family, and co-workers to complete as many pushups in 90 seconds as possible. In 90 seconds, participants get a first-hand taste of what service members endure their entire military career, showing their support of the 1.4 million active duty men and women and 22 million veterans. Many will pledge a dollar amount per pushup, others will give an amount that speaks to them, but all donations will change the lives of heroes that protect our freedom.
In 90 seconds anyone can make a difference in the lives of America’s military and veterans. Rebel Fit USA has set a goal of raising $10,000 and completing over 5,000 pushups. Sign-up for the Rebel Fit Pushups For Charity team is available now online: pushupsforcharity.com.

Many of the military community are members of the Rebel Fit family, including clients and staff. These individuals have placed themselves in uncomfortable situations to protect and serve our wonderful country; so why not sacrifice a few seconds of being uncomfortable to support them?
“As an Air Force veteran, the PUC means everything to me! Helping veterans out who put their life on the line every single day to protect our freedom and knowing firsthand the sacrifices they and their families make in the process makes PUC a necessity,” said Beny Blaq, Owner/Head Trainer.
Rebel Fit USA encourages residents of the DC Metropolitan Area to devote 90 seconds to make a life-changing impact on the lives of those who bravely serve our country. Join the Rebel Fit Pushups For Charity team here: crowdrise.com/benyblaq-pushupsforcharity2016/fundraiser/benyblaq.
