Plank for a Cause #redcross100

Jen Plank

A 100 second plank in gratitude to the volunteers that give their time to this great organization. Her is how I thought of the idea and how it works.

jen head shotHow it works:
1. You will be holding a 100 second plank (1m40sec) it can be whatever variation you want it to be, even modified, but no switching around.
2. After completion- share this photo and tag 3 friends to take the challenge using the hashtag #redcross100
3. This is all for a good cause! We suggest a $20 donation, but you can donate whatever you feel appropriate!

Have fun with it… Help create awareness and positive change! Maybe snap a pic and post on my FB Page.

I want to see those planks!   Jen

Edit 3They will now spend the next four months learning two ballroom dances which they will perform at Dancing with our Stars 2016. That event will take place Saturday, February 20th at the KI Convention Center in downtown Green Bay. Dancing with our Stars is now in its eighth year and it is has been a sold-out event each year. Not only do those in attendance support local efforts, so can those not attending as the “star dancers” receive votes in the form of donations to the Red Cross. One dollar equals one vote. Donations can be made now at this website:

The person who raises the most money between now and the end of the event will be awarded the coveted Fundraising Mirror Ball Trophy. All funds raised support disaster prevention, preparation and relief, the life-saving training of first aid, CPR/AED classes, collection and testing of blood and blood products, support to military members serving around the globe and international programs.

Last year’s event raised $170,000 for the local Red Cross.  Ann Vande Hei, Director of Business Process Performance, Integrys, took home the Fundraising Mirror Ball Trophy after raising $60,000.

Another cast of local celebrities is assembling to participate in Dancing with Our Stars for the American Red Cross of Northeast Wisconsin.  The star dancers will compete to raise the most money and take home the coveted Fundraising Mirror Ball Trophy.  This year’s participants will be revealed during a private kickoff party Tuesday, October 6. Presented by Festival Foods, the kickoff party will be held at The Marq on French Road in De Pere.

“This event continues to grow and create a buzz in the community,” says Chapter Executive Steve Hansen.  “The star dancers do a tremendous job not only on the dance floor but more importantly raising funds to help support local Red Cross efforts.”

Dancing with Our Stars is now in its eighth year.  Not only do those in attendance support local efforts, so can those not attending as the star dancers receive votes in the form of donations to the Red Cross.  One dollar equals one vote.  All funds raised support disaster prevention, preparation and relief, the life-saving training of first aid, CPR/AED classes, collection and testing of blood and blood products, support to military members serving around the globe and international programs.

Last year’s event raised nearly $170,000 in net revenue for the local Red Cross.  Ann Vande Hei of Wisconsin Public Service took home the Fundraising Mirror Ball Trophy after raising $60,000.
