Marine Doing 1 Million Push-Ups to Raise Money for Wounded Warriors Gets Challenged to “Push-Off” Against Country Star Craig Morgan
A lot of Americans start their day with a set of push-ups, but one Marine is going above and beyond for an organization called the Wounded Warrior Project. Sgt. Enrique Trevino will not stop doing push-ups until he makes it to a total of one million in one year. We’re exhausted just thinking about that.
Earlier this morning, Sgt. Trevino joined Fox and Friends to describe why he decided to set this huge goal … one that started as his New Year’s resolution. At first he tried to make the goal to do one million pushups in four months, but when he realized that was a little too zealous of a goal, he decided to change his time frame to one year.
When Trevino broke down the numbers, it ended up being an average of 2,372 push-ups a day that he’d need to hit the million mark. After a week into his goal, he decided that instead of just benefiting himself with the exercise, he wanted to give back to his brothers and sisters in the armed forces by raising money for the Wounded Warrior Project.
He is trying to raise at least $40,000 for wounded soldiers through donations; so far he’s made it to $25,798. As of last night, Trevino has done 531,025 push-ups.
As a surprise, Steve Doocy challenged Trevino to go up against country star & retired vet Craig Morgan in a “push-off.”

2,300 a day is doable. But if you miss a day now you have to knock out 4,600 the next day. :eek:
Good luck dude.
I think Ody should relieve him for a week.Be Not Afraid.

If this Marine is able to maintain the numbers necessary to meet his goal, then we should take some of the money that he raises and see if we can find any other survivors of Krypton, so that he isn't completely alone.

1,000,000/366 = 2,732 per day that he actually has to do.
So far he has knocked out 531,025 in 194 days (Jan 1 through July 12). That's 2,737 per day. It looks like he's going to make it. If you want to bet against him the rest of the way, I will take that bet.Be Not Afraid.
