If you’re interested in taking part in this event you can join the Facebook Group as all of the details relating to the event and how to get the patch are posted there.
As some of you know I recently completed the 10,000 push up challenge… which makes me a member of the 10,000 push up club! The deal is once you’re finished you can send $10 as a donation to the GBF (through the organizer of the event) and he will in turn mail a patch to you. This is the patch that you receive for completing this event.
When it comes to patches one of the things I love more than collecting them is earning them. It’s one thing to buy a patch because it’s funny or awesome and it’s another to sweat and earn one. One of my favorite things about these patches is that they have stories behind them. Due to being sick and running a marathon (aka being unlucky and piss poor planning) I had to complete 2,450 push ups in my last day of the event. That day was both amazing and a nightmare. It had never hurt to lift my arms solely because of push ups before until then. Whenever I look at this patch I think of moments like those. I also think of looking at the clock, seeing 9:30 pm, and knowing I still had 500+ push ups to bust out.
It’s great to buy patches and support causes that you love (I do this a ton if you didn’t know) but the patches I love the most are the ones I have earned.
