This week, the fine folks at CSX reached out to me about a really cool campaign they’ve started to support our troops in honor of Memorial Day! I’ve mentioned this before, but I work with the military and have a lot of friends/loved ones who have or are currently serving. I don’t think anyone at CSX even knows that, so this was a neat surprise.
From May 20-29, whenever you do 10 push-ups and tweet or Instragram about it using the hashtag #GiveThem10, CSX will donate $1 to Wounded Warrior Project! CSX will donate an additional $1, with the goal of reaching $50,000 total – how cool is that?!
Last night, I went to a Body Pump class and ending up pounding out about 20 push-ups. Some were with some REALLY jelly-like arms that could barely push anything, but I still tried to get ‘em done!
By the way, for those of you who are diehard ‘Pump fans, I finally get what the hype was about! I looooooooooooove it!
Anyways, you can learn more about CSX’s Drop and Give Them 10 movement by browsing their push-up gallery (there are lots of different ways to push-up for a good cause!) and visiting dropandgivethem10.com.
I’m headed to California today (woohoooooooooooo).. um, in a few hours actually……….. so I should probably consider packing.
Are push-ups a regular part of your fitness routine? They’re such a great way to tone your arms and an easy exercise when you don’t have access to a gym!
