Karate student takes on incredible press-up challenge for Crossroads Care


11 February 2022

Milan, a local Karate student with a rare genetic disorder will do 100 press-ups in a row this month to raise money for the Crossroads Care Saturday Club.

Milan has Wiedemann-Steiner syndrome which causes symptoms including short stature and a reduction in muscle tone (hypotonia).

But Milan, currently a yellow belt, is undertaking the incredible challenge even though the minimum required to gain a black belt is 50 consecutive press-ups. Milan, who was named Karate Student of the Year in 2021, has already managed to do an impressive 50 press-ups without stopping, but wants to go even further than that by achieving 100.

Milan’s aim is to raise £1,000 for the Saturday Club that he loves. Can you help him reach his target?
