"Pushups for Charity" set July 26 at LHS stadium

FROM STAFF REPORTS
VERNON PARISH -- "Pushups For Charity," a fundraiser for the troops, will be held Saturday, July 26 at the Leesville High School stadium.

The event is being sponsored by the Military Affairs Committee of the Greater Vernon Parish Chamber of Commerce. It's part of the national, non-profit Boot Campaign.

Activities will be from 9:30 a.m. to noon.

Through "Pushups For Charity," Americans can show their support for the 1.4 million men and women who are serving in the armed forces by doing as many pushups they can in 90 seconds.

The effort's goal is to have Americans complete 1/4 million pushups and raise $1 million to serve the troops through the Boot Campaign, which helps veterans with jobs, housing, wellness and education.
