A “plank" is a core strength exercise that requires a lot of endurance. Just like fighting human trafficking. The plank challenge makes the fight real. Participants agree to hold a “plank”, however long they wish, as a simple way to show their commitment to a healthy society, free of human trafficking. Luis Leonardo, (also involved in the 2700-mile awareness ride and Keep Hope Alive music video) held a plank for 27 minutes (yes, 27 minutes) to kick off our Plank Challenge on August 27, 2014. This was just a month before he rode 2700 miles across America, to challenge others to #JustPlankIt, during our national awareness bicycle ride.
Stay tuned as we are preparing to bring the Plank Challenge to your city soon!
