A MESSAGE FROM SGT PUSHUP OF THE STOP I COUNT MOVEMENT
SGT PUSHUP OF THE STOP I COUNT MOVEMENT
Thank you so much for taking the time to visit my site. My name is Patrick Parker and I am a decorated war Veteran who wants to do continue doing something meaningful for my country. I want to continue to serve our nation by helping our children from sea to shining sea. I thought a great way to do this is to end bullying and childhood hunger and unify our nation.
To assist me with my mission, I created the character SGT Push-up. You will see SGT Push-up as he travels around the country, meeting with children, conducting bullying workshops, and raising money for food banks. He uses various fitness activities like push-ups, sit-ups, dancing, jumping jacks, jumping rope, and hopscotch as ways to get people moving. When he meets people, he chats for a bit, starts a quick workout, and makes a friend all at the same time. Making friends is a wonderful way to unite the country.
I also have the STOP I YOU WE COUNT campaign, which is designed to create more cohesive relationships among friends, family members, peers, and especially strangers. We must learn how to set aside differences that we have with one another and do something for the greater good of our nation. I embrace the words of our Former President John F. Kennedy who said, “Ask not what your country can do for you — ask what you can do for your country.” This will take time and dedication to embrace each other’s uniqueness, but it can be done! While we’re learning about one another, let’s show our children how adults can and should live together peacefully.
Will you help me complete this important mission as we help
