Thank you Marty’s for bringing our community together so we can make a difference out there in this world!
Each October, the Washington community comes together to celebrate our strength as we participate daily in a “Plank Challenge”. In past years, the month has culminated in a town wide “Plank-a-thon” with a DJ, door prizes and of course our plank champions. After a unique 2020 we had a live competitive crew during our Saturday #FUNWITHFITNESS. Planktober 2021, we had our top spots 1 and 2 Champions who competed for 30 minutes of planking. Jim Appleyard and Frank Gustafson blew the crowd out of the water and agreed on a 30 minute finish. Keeping his word the competition ended there and what happens at Planktober after that, well next year you just have to come and find out for yourself!
Yes, we raised $785.25 for Projectgrl.org. Projectgrl.org
“Project GRL exists for every girl who has been mistreated, marginalized, or feels insecure or hopeless. Far too many girls simply have no idea of their value, and it breaks my heart. The mission of Project GRL is to let every girl know that she is a daughter of the King—highly treasured with limitless potential.” ~Joyce Meyer.
Some Plantober participants may not have planked shoulder to shoulder as the month came to an end but that did not stop us from showing our strength, showing our generosity and of course celebrating our plank champions!
Last year, we planked in gratitude for the Washington Community Fund. This Planktober 2021 we plank for Projectgrl.org.
And it wouldn’t be Planktober 2021 without this year’s fashion staple…for those who make a donation, you will receive this special Planktober 2021 hat while supplies last!!
