STAMFORD, CT - Eight members of Cushman & Wakefield’s Future Leaders (CWFL) Group joined forces to compete in the “Push Against Cancer” competition run by the Fitness Factory in Westport, Conn on June 2, 2012. The team members competed to do as many push-ups as possible in the two-hour event period and collected pledges of support. C&W raised more than $3,000 from a combined 3,500 pushups, the proceeds of which will benefit the Hole in the Wall Gang Camp. Founded in 1988 by the late actor Paul Newman, the Hole in the Wall Gang Camp, a summer get-away for children with cancer and other serious illnesses, has been serving the community for more than 20 years.

Andy Berman, gym co-owner along with Mary Sue Teplitz, discussed their decision to initiate the push-up fundraiser, "We wanted to do something meaningful, give back to the region and put our muscles to use. This competition seemed a great way to support the good work that the Hole in the Wall Gang Camp accomplishes."

The CWFL team, located in C&W’s Stamford, Conn. and Rye Brook, N.Y. offices, was comprised of Caroline Ball, Clint Dewey, Greg Kenny, Adam Klimek, Bill Montague, Kate Schwartz, Brian Scruton, and Torey Walsh.

Cushman & Wakefield’s Future Leaders Group was established in 2011. Its mission in the Americas is to create a network of rising professionals within the firm which, through its four core principles of continuing education, collaboration, and community service, will grow individually and collectively. Its professionals strive to advance the company’s brand, the careers of its members, and the company’s vision to provide the most creative and innovative services on a consistent basis, driving meaningful value to clients.

Kate Schwartz, who organized C&W’s participation in the event, said, “I really appreciate my teammates efforts and the support shown by the professionals in our Fairfield and Westchester County offices. It was well worth it to know that we brightened the lives of these brave children by sending them to this wonderful camp.”

Commenting on the competition, Jim Fagan, senior managing director and market leader of Cushman & Wakefield’s Fairfield and Westchester County regions said, “It’s really terrific to see C&W’s newest generation of professionals work together for the good of the community. This type of effort typifies the level of responsibility and commitment that Cushman & Wakefield encourages in these rising stars.”
