Six man team completes 20,000 press ups in a day for local hospice
A team from St Anns Shopping Centre in Harrow including four Incentive FM staff, has put in a herculean effort for a local charity, by completing 20,000 press ups in under five hours.
Operations manager Shaun Wall from Incentive FM created and ran the event with centre manager Pieter Strombeck from JLL, and both undertook the challenge.
The team also included duty manager Daniel Lewis, Lorenzo Kerr, cleaning operative, and Sammy Al Ali, security officer, all from Incentive FM, and Wilson Emmett, surveying executive for JLL. They took on two teams from local rival shopping centre St Georges and the Fitness First branch in Harrow.
The team raised a total of £2,500 for St Luke's Hospice in Harrow, including £700 of prizes donated by tenants of the centre. They took only 4 hrs 45 mins to complete the 20,000 press-ups, cheered on by a crowd of supporters. Despite their best efforts, the other two teams didn't manage to finish the daunting task.
"Following last year's challenge of 10,000 press ups in four hours at King's Cross Station for Macmillan Cancer Support, we wanted to go one better this year," says a no doubt exhausted Shaun Wall. "I am so proud of our team and their efforts for this great cause, and we are very grateful for the fantastic support from customers and tenants in the centre. However none of us is keen on doing any press ups for a while!"
Donations can still be made to support the team's efforts at their Just Giving page:
