Staten Island, New York, UNITED STATES


Staten Island, NY, Dec. 02, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- 500,000 push-ups down and less than a million to go. 

Nate Carroll has crossed the 500,000 mark in his quest to break the world record for push-ups done in a year. 

Motivating him to get up and do push-ups every day, in addition to raising his three kids, and working his day job, is his goal of raising $1.5 million dollars for the Tunnel to Towers Foundation’s Fallen First Responder Home Program, which pays off mortgages for the families of law enforcement officers and firefighters killed in the line of duty who leave behind young children.

“Every day I pour my heart into pushups for families I've never met, in hopes of honoring their Mother or Father who gave their life protecting families like mine.  It's important to me that these families know that haven’t been forgotten,” said Carroll. 

Every day through the end of the year Carroll will be dedicating that day’s push-ups to a family who will have their mortgage paid off or receive a mortgage-free home from the Tunnel to Towers Foundation as part of its 2020 Season of Hope is delivering 36 mortgage-free homes in 25 states in the span of 36 days. 

You can watch Nate complete his pushups and hear the family’s stories on his YouTube page

Everyone of these first responders has a story of courage sacrifice and heroism they ran towards danger - losing their lives to protect the life of a stranger. I hope to share these stories about these men and women that we call heroes - but someone called Dad or Mom,” said Carroll.
