Evansville attempting to break world record

A group of local gym owners and trainers are hoping to put Evansville in the record books by breaking a push-up record.

"Pushups for Charity" will start at 9 o'clock Saturday at the State Hospital Park.

This is the fourth year in a row they are attempting to break it. 

All the money raised during the push-up event will go toward the Wounded Warrior Project.

It will kick off "Fitness in the Park" which will last until 11 a.m.

You'll have a chance take Zumba, kickboxing, yoga, and boot camp classes.

Organizers hope you come out.

"Our goal is to get 250 people out here all together at the same time. If we do that we feel like we have a chance at a Guinness World Book of Records. At least that should give us a number we could submit and it should be pretty close," says Tony Maslan who is a Marine Vet helping to organize the fundraiser.

You can come into the State Hospital Park at the Lincoln Entrance.

In case the event gets rained out, it will move to the Swonder Ice Arena.

You can also donate money to the Wounded Warrior Project here.
