MADISON COUNTY - People from across the Brazos Valley celebrated Memorial Day by doing push-ups for charity at a Madisonville event on Sunday.

Kids as young as six and as old as 60 participated in the 90-second push-up challenge. The group totaled doing more than 2,000 push-ups. All proceeds from the event benefit the Boot Campaign, which helps current and former military members who were wounded physically or emotionally while in service.

Organizers say the challenge was a big success and hope to make it an annual event.
