MY GOALS ARE TO SET A FEW MORE RECORDS IN 2017 WHEN I TURN 52 YEARS OLD

When I decided to Break World Records I thought what if I could break World Records, and help out a charity in the process? I knew I wanted to sponsor a homeless shelter and to do it in my community, to give back if you will.  I learned about the Coachella Valley Rescue Mission and the wonderful people who work there, and I proceeded to leap headfirst into running a charity fund-raiser.  I have now sponsored two charity events and been involved in a third and I definitely feel as though I am just getting started.  I do not think there could be a bad charity, and I know there are a lot that are near and dear to people's hearts, but if you do not have a charity currently, and you would like to be involved with either charity work or donating, then I encourage everyone to check out the CVRM.

Thanks for listening.

RECAP ON CHARITY EVENT FROM MAY 22, 2010 PALM DESERT GOLD'S GYM THAT BENEFITED THE COACHELLA VALLEY RESCUE MISSION.

The charity event was a big success.  Moe Carson ended up getting a World Record in chin-ups in the 90 year old division.  Awesome job Moe.  I ended up getting a new PR with 148 pull-ups in 10 minutes.  We raised almost 2,000 dollars for the mission as well.  Thank you so much to everyone who attended and also who donated money to the mission.

I participated in another charity event for the CVRM on January 29th 2010.  The event was held at the Marywood-Palm Valley school in Rancho Mirage Ca.  The kids at the school were attempting to raise 25,000 dollars so that the CVRM (homeless shelter) can start construction on a new building that they desperately need.  I participated in the kick-off event at the school on January 8th by speaking to the student body about charity, physical fitness, and never giving up aka...pull-ups.  I also spoke at the event on the day of the walkathon and had a wonderful time with the kids.  Seems like every kid in the school as well as a lot of the teachers did a pull-up that day.
