Push America’s ePerspective is a monthly newsletter sent to the extended family of Push America and past participants with the purpose of providing insight to the events of Push America and possible opportunities for involvement.
A successful summer comes to an end
Another summer has come and gone at Push America, and lives across the country have forever been altered thanks to the hard work and dedication of Push America team members and the extended Push America family. Gear Up Florida, Build America and Journey of Hope all experienced tremendous highs this year while covering thousands of miles and making hundreds of new friends from Miami to Seattle. Over 150 young men not only changed lives across the country, but were also changed themselves.

Halloween is often synonymous with candy, costumes and scary movies. October 31 will be very different for Push America this year; it will be about sweat and determination, hard work and abilities, teamwork and accomplishments.
A huge thank you to our volunteers
Push America’s 2010 summer event teams raised a combined total of over $660,000 to support people with disabilities. Thanks to the generosity and support of our volunteer system, over 85% of the funds raised by the team members go directly to programming that supports people with disabilities all across the country.
Corporate sponsors help reach new heights
One of the major parts of Push America’s summer is support from several corporate sponsors from around the country. The help of corporate sponsors is essential in propelling the organization’s mission through Gear Up Florida, Build America and Journey of Hope. Our corporate sponsors allow more fundraising dollars to go directly back into the disability community, while also helping team members with their event preparation and even their safety on the road.
