Welcome to the Push-Up & Up Challenge Charleston 2013. In its 6th year, the Push-Up & Up Challenge is an exciting competition to see which team can raise the most money and complete the most push-ups in 30 minutes.

Why push-ups? Push-ups are one of the basic and most common exercises for the human body. Push-ups are not only great for your chest, but also strengthen abs, triceps, shoulders and torso. Push-ups can be performed anywhere and can also help build bone density and strength and can improve functional fitness.

Event Information:

When: Saturday, April 13, from 9 am to noon.
Where: Marion Square, Downtown Charleston, next to the Farmers Market
What: Push-up competition to support proven programs in dropout prevention
Benefits: Communities In Schools of the Charleston Area (CIS)

MUSC is a lead sponsor for this event and we are asking departments, groups and colleges to form teams to participate and raise money for this great cause. Look for training tips on broadcast messages and team contests with prizes on facebook.
