Veteran Doing 11 Hours and 11 Minutes of Pull-Ups For Veterans Day
John Brunelli, of Attleboro Massachusetts is commemorating Veteran's Day differently than many of us are.
The 53-year-old Navy Veteran is hanging out at the gym for the entire day, doing 11 hours and 11 minutes of pull-ups in honor of all of those who have served our country.
Brunelli is raising money for Homes for Our Troops, a local organization that builds homes specially designed for veterans who were wounded.
“I think a lot of people forget about the families too and what they have to go through, of that mental trauma they have to go through,” Brunelli told WPRI. “I think it’s a great organization and I’m privileged to be able to do this for them.”
We talked with John this morning, who told us he started his pull-ups just after midnight. He's in the homestretch of his challenge, and has already surpassed his goal of $1,111 with a current amount of $2,800.
His hands, after over 10 hours, look terrible.
