In 2012, Pushups for Charity raised $300,000 for the Boot Campaign, allowing the nonprofit to provide assistance such as mortgage-free housing and PTSD counseling to our nation's wounded defenders.
A highlight of this year's Pushups for Charity is wounded veteran athletes from CrossFit Walter Reed participating in Pushups for Charity events throughout the country.
