Approximately 500 students and staff members at Rocky Point Middle School dropped and did as many push-ups as they could this fall to raise money for the RWB Veterans Organization, a group that enriches the lives of America’s veterans. Students were dressed up in red (sixth-graders), white (seventh-graders) and blue (eighth-graders) as they showed their push-up skills on the high school turf field. All in all, more than $2,500 was raised for the cause.
Students in grades 6-8 were dressed up in red, white and blue for the Push-Up Challenge.
These sixth-graders were excited to kick off the Push-Up Challenge on Oct. 28.
Seniors dropped to the ground and did as many push-ups as they could on Oct. 28, and it was all for a good cause.
Staff members also participated along with Rocky Point Middle School students.
Everyone had smiles after a successful Push-Up Challenge.
