LATROBE, PA, February 2014 – American Association For Lost Children, Inc. (AAFLC) is hosting the second annual PUSH-UP  COMPETITION  to raise money to help find and rescue more missing children. The event is being held Sunday March 16, 2014 at the Ramada Inn of Greensburg, the main sponsor of this event.

Are you up for the challenge? How many push-ups can you do in two hours? We are looking for men and women to compete in a one of a kind 2-hour push-up competition.

Registration is free for participants. Participants could register individually or as a three person team.  There will be a total of 40 teams which will represent various health clubs, local fitness facilities, and personal trainers.  This event will be filled with fun and competition with the focus being on health and wellness.  Medals will be awarded for the most pushups for females, males and as a team. The age categories are, 17 and under, 18-40, and over 40 years.  There will also be medals awarded for the most funds raised, both individually and as a team.
