American Cancer Society 25 Pushups A Day in February 2022 Challenge

Last year it was Pushups for Veteran Support. This year it's the California 2nd Annual 25 Push-ups a Day Challenge for American Cancer Society! Please support me as I raise funds by taking on 25 push-ups to help American Cancer Society achieve their amazing mission. Every donation, big or small, counts. Cheer me on in making a difference!

Event runs from February 1, 2022 through March 7, 2022 (25 days) so get ready for a variety of seating, standing, assisted, propped, and accessible pushups to engage, inspire, entertain (heavy on the entertain BTW), and strengthen (body, mind, sense of humor as well). 

I created this fundraiser because.... it's a personal challenge and one of accessibility and service! If you appreciate what I'm doing, drop a few dollars on the fundraising page and help research into a cure. 

If you are interested in my style of practice, check out more of what I do at at the link up there at the top right ( and consider dropping into one of my free yoga online yoga classes (or even joining my Patreon to help pay the bills)

Let's take a little walk down memory lane...

Day 1 of 22: a straightforward incline pushup.

Day 3 going strong with one-legged pushups (so graceful too!).

Day 6, the overhead press for a seated, non-weight-bearing option (but damn those shoulder and triceps were on FIRE).

Day 12 at 1/2 way through, we tried some mountain climbers for variety...

By Day 19 we had modified what I was calling a pushup considerably: sustained side arm balance with hip abduction - PHEW!

Day 22 took us to new heights and lengths with spinal balances: full arm and leg extensions in an inclined plank.
