Push-Up Challenge raises $2,650 toward combating human trafficking
The Push-Up Challenge to raise money to fight human trafficking was held on Oct. 11 at Bible Presbyterian Church in Merrill. The evening was a great time of friendly competition and encouragement that raised $2,650 for Operation Underground Railroad. A total of 35 people from various local churches, both male and female up to 62 years of age participated. A total of 1,352 push-ups were completed! The most moving part was seeing the photo booth pictures. Everyone who came made a sign revealing why they came that night. Pictures were taken of all holding their signs.
Nationally over $750,000 was raised for this cause through Life Leadership.
