Bader Grant Recipient, Para Dressage Rider, Richard Neumann, has come up with a great fundraising idea. He plans to perform 1000 press ups in one day, on a date to be announced in August, to raise funds for the DBF, Arctic One and the NHS. We are extremely grateful to him for including us in this ambitious goal.

Doing 1000 press ups in one day would be a challenge for anyone but more so for Richard than most as he had surgery on both wrists leaving him unable to bend them. This means that he will have to perform the press ups using handles for support.

You can see from the videos below that Richard is already training hard for this challenge and, if you’d like to support his efforts and raise funds for 3 very worthy causes, you can donate via the link to his fundraising page at the bottom of this post.


To support Richard in what will be a difficult challenge to raise funds for 3 very good causes, please visit his Fundraising Page by following the link.

Thank you on behalf of all of us who stand to benefit from Richard’s efforts.
