Push-Up & Up 2019
The Push-Up & Up Challenge is a Charleston event designed to raise awareness and money for Communities In Schools in their mission to support proven programs in school dropout prevention.
On Saturday, Nov. 9, over 235 community participants, making up 20 teams, gathered at Cool Blow Park to support the 2019 Push Up & Up Challenge. Together, adults and students completed more than 46,000 push-ups. A pretty amazing feat on a very cold day!
The Push-Up & Up event has raised more than $265,000 for Communities In Schools of the Charleston Area since its inception eight years ago, and commitments for this year’s event reached close to $25,000. These funds allow the CIS program to aid more than 8,000 students annually in navigating their education by surrounding students with a community of support, empowering them to stay in school and achieve in life.
