Performing 100 muscle-ups as part of her Operation Pull for Hope, Mounsey managed to raise over $53,000 for Hope for the Warriors. Those funds will be used by the charity to help servicepeople and their families who have been challenged by injuries or deaths in the line of duty.
With CrossFit gymnastics expert Jeff Tucker on hand, Mounsey completed the muscle-ups in 35 minutes flat in front of a large and vocal crowd. A host of people joined Gillian on the rings to show their support.
“That’s what this community is all about,” Tucker said after the memorable event.
