Moving Morning on the National Mall


Moving Morning on the National Mall

It’s hard to imagine a more fitting backdrop for the grand finale of The Boot Campaign’s Pushups for Charity than the Lincoln Memorial on Washington DC’s National Mall. Our partner the Boot Campaign gathered top fundraisers, VIPs, and anyone who happened to be walking by to do as many pushups as they could in 90 seconds. It was a moving and inspirational wrap-up of Pushups for Charity, an annual event that raises awareness of the challenges military service members and veterans face, and raises money to support their unique needs.

Sword & Spoon/SixSeeds is proud to have been a sponsor for the nationwide event which ran through the summer. Every pushup brings awareness to military struggles resulting from their service and sacrifice, and every dollar raised helps the Boot Campaign bridge the gap between government programs designed to care for our military and the challenges of life during and post-service.

SixSeeds Editor Nancy French was privileged to be there and wrote about what a touching and meaningful morning it was. Read her story here.
