Go Hank, Go!

Posted on September 22, 2011 by Nora DePalma3 Comments

We’re doing extra laps and push-ups today in honor of our friend Hank Darlington who pushed off this morning on his Maine to Florida bike ride.  Hank will be averaging more than 70 miles a day for the next 26 days.

In other words, averaging his age in mileage every day.

We want to take a nap on our couches just thinking about it.

Hank is ready to roll

Hank and our client, Mr. Steam, want us to get off our couches, however, and start actively pursuing wellness. Which is why Mr. Steam partnered with the Decorative Plumbing & Hardware Association (DPHA) to deliver regular updates on Hank’s progress, along with fitness tips from Fun and Fit, to get us all up and moving.

Follow along with Hank’s ride on the Mr. Steam Steamtherapy Facebook page or following the Twitter hashtag: #hanksride.

Hank and Mr. Steam are also working to raise money for the DPHA Scholarship Foundation, which provides two $3,000 scholarships to a child or grandchild of DPHA member companies for post-secondary education.

O’Reilly/DePalma kicked in $100. Surely you can do $10, $25, $50 or even a $100? It’s uber-convenient with Pay Pal and you don’t even need an account.

This contribution is tax-deductible as a charitable contribution, since DPHA is recognized as a section 501(c)(3) organization with the IRS.


And now, if you’ll excuse us, we’re going to get our workout done today.
