Boot Campaign is bringing its 4th Annual Pushups for Charity fundraiser to Staten Island, NY. On May 16, Armed Forces Day, make the push to support veterans in New York and nationwide. We are challenging Americans to complete as many pushups as possible in 90 seconds, all while raising awareness and funds for veterans, active duty service members and their families. Special guests include Purple Heart recipient SSgt. Joey Jones (USMC Ret.) and actor/producer Theo Rossi (Sons of Anarchy).
Last year, participants helped the Boot Campaign provide over $500,000 in urgent financial assistance, $750,000 for housing assistance and $564,000 toward wellness and family initiatives to help our warriors have a more successful transition back into civilian life.
