Have you heard of the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge? Now is your chance to participate in a similar challenge to benefit people with Parkinson’s disease. Join HAPS and the other members of Alliance of Independent Regional Parkinson Organizations (AIRPO) across the nation to take the Cardel Homes Push-ups 4 Parkinson’s Challenge
kicking off on May 1st
! Created by Cardel Homes in Colorado in connection with the Parkinson Association of the Rockies, this challenge is designed to encourage creative and fun online videos to help raise awareness for Parkinson’s, as well as generate crucial funding for the programs and services of each participating Parkinson’s support organization.
Here is how it works:
Take a video of yourself doing any kind of push-up including modified, air push-up, pushing up off a chair – anything is acceptable.
In your video, nominate specific friends to donate and take the Push-ups 4 Parkinson’s Challenge
Upload your video to your Facebook page, tagging the friends you challenged and using the hashtag #pushups4parkinsons.

Encourage your community groups to get involved – schools, churches, fitness groups, companies, restaurants, etc.
