Hope Loves Company was nominated by the Friends of Jeff Madelone to do 19 push ups to raise ALS awareness in honor of Jeff Madelone, who was diagnosed with ALS 19 years ago.

Thank you Jeff, Megan, Joe, and Grace for supporting Hope Loves Company this year!


Friends of Jeff Madelone

The Friends of Jeff Madelone is an organization established for the purpose of raising funds to aid Jeff Madelone in his fight against ALS.

Jeff received his ALS diagnosis 19 years ago.

The Push Up Challenge

Although this challenge was established as a way to raise ALS awareness, many have expressed interest in making a donation in Jeff's honor. This year, the Friends of Jeff Madelone Push Up Challenge is supporting Hope Loves Company and our free programs for families affected by ALS. Jeff's daughter, Grace, attends Camp HLC every year.

How Does it Work?

There are two different ways to participate in this challenge!

Every day, for 19 days, record yourself doing 19 push ups (or as best as you can do!) and share on social media! Each day, nominate and tag another person to participate in the challenge. Or, record one video of yourself doing 19 push ups and share on social media and nominate three people to participate in the challenge! You can do modified push ups and take breaks!

Remember to use the hashtag, #PushUpChallenge, and tag Friends of Jeff Madelone and Hope Loves Company!
