Last year we held a community Plank-a-thon to benefit local food pantries, and we raised over $1,000!!!! 

100% of the funds raised went to our neighbors in need.

More info:

What is a Plank?
A plank is a full-body exercise that, when performed correctly, can be very beneficial to improving core strength. It is very tough to sustain for long periods!

What is Plank-a-thon?

Participants hold a plank position for their desired length of time (for as long as possible).

In the weeks leading up to the event, KAM coaches can teach you how to plank safely and effectively.

How are the funds raised?
Participants gather funds either by sponsoring themselves or asking family and friends to sponsor them, similar to participating in a walk or run for charity. Sponsors can pledge by the second or minute of your planking time or make a flat-rate donation.

How is the money used?
100 % of the money raised goes to our local food pantries. The food pantry can use this money to purchase food at the Food Banks in larger cities. The pantry can buy 5 lbs of food for every dollar you raise. The more money you raise, the more families we can help!.
