For the past 12 years Entrepreneurs for North Texas (EFNT) has organized events to bring the North Texas community together on September 11 for Freedom Day. It’s an inspiring day of service to honor the lives tragically lost on September 11, 2001. Last year JLL Dallas joined the efforts and painted the halls of the Atwell School in south Dallas.
JLL Managing Director Steve Thelen said, “It was a rewarding and memorable day, so of course we wanted to get involved again.”
This year, EFNT is dedicating Freedom Day to our veterans and JLL has pledged to take part in the supply drive that will benefit veterans transitioning back into society. In addition, our team is doing as many push-ups as possible for the #22kill initiative. So far we’ve posted 44 push-ups from Thelen and Research Director Walter Bialas, the first JLL’ers to get us started! Something tells us that the friendly competition is going to prompt several challenges in our halls over the following weeks!
Below is a video of the two doing their 22 push-ups! If you think you can do better, then we want you to prove it by joining the viral movement. Tweet @JLLDallas and use #22kill when you post your video to social media platforms.
