6,000 Push-ups

Dennis doing push-ups

On Monday, February 20, Sheridan local, Dennis Mohatt completed 6,003 push-ups to raise funds for Volunteers of America Northern Rockies (VOA) Veteran Services. The push-up challenge took place at Anytime Fitness and was completed in 4 hours and 30 minutes.

Dennis had a 4-person team counting push-ups, some cheering fans, and several other well wishers who were at the gym to workout. 6,003 push-ups later with a smile on his face, Dennis said, “Should I do some more?” He was exhausted but feeling victorious.

What an accomplishment! Dennis set a new personal record of number of push-ups in a day. This is not the first time Dennis has completed a push-up challenge fundraiser that seemed impossible. Last year he set a goal to do 5,000 push-ups and completed 5,050 push-ups.

As a Navy Veteran, Dennis has a passion for helping others and living a healthy lifestyle. He explained, “being part of the military culture, it's fundamental that your primary obligation is to help your fellow shipmates”. With your help, he is striving to help others by raising funds for VOA Veteran Services, supporting a healthy lifestyle, and bringing attention to Cardio-vascular disease.
