Matt's sponsored 100 press-up challenge!

Last week my son, Matt, did his sponsored 100 press-up challenge in front of our karate class as part of his fundraising efforts for his Kilimanjaro challenge.

I thought he made an heroic effort to achieve this challenge as he found it harder than he had expected. He confessed later that he hadn't actually ever achieved 100 press-ups during his training and had only ever managed 70 before (which he then revised down to 60). Teenagers!!

However, he didn't want to let anyone down on the night and was determined to complete the challenge by hook or by crook. He cracked out the first 50 without too much problem but the second 50 became as much a mental challenge as a physical one. But he didn't give up and finally reached the target of 100. In fact watching him struggle on the 100th press-up still brings a tear to my eye.

Here's the video.....

Well, he's my hero anyway. Well done Matt. x
