Help us raise money for Classroom Champions and the ALTIS Foundation


I am doing this because I believe in the great work that these two non-profits do.The monies raised from #EmbracetheSuck will go towards supporting African-American kids and student-athletes from elementary school right through to University.


I hope you will support myself, and a group of my friends and colleagues as we mentally and physically challenge ourselves to complete …

  • 100 deadlifts at 100k
  • 100 push-ups
  • 5 mile run

every day for the month of February (please note that some ‘suck embracers’ will be completing slightly different challenges, based upon their specific level of fitness/strength).

I have written about the genesis of this challenge, where ‘Embrace the Suck’ came from, the science behind why we are doing this seemingly crazy thing, and the non-profit Organizations that will benefit from this over the course of a series of short blog-posts.

Interested in joining us to #EmbraceTheSuck?


Well - that's easy - just choose something that is going to suck, and then do it EVERY DAY!!


And if you want to not only push yourself mentally and physically, but also financially, shoot me an email at, or a DM on my Twitter (@StuartMcMillan1) or Instagram (@Fingermash) accounts.  We'll get you added to the team within a day or two.  If you raise $1,000 or more, I'm going to add you to our exclusive thread with my friends and I who are committed to Embracing the Suck this month.


Please note that this fundraiser is connected to the ALTIS bank account, from which at the end of the month, 50% of all collected monies will be transferred to Classroom Champions, and 50% will be transferred to the ALTIS Foundation. *The ALTIS Foundation is in the final stages of being approved by the IRS for 501(c) status, and will provide tax receipts for donations over $50. The ALTIS Foundation EIN number (Tax ID) is 85-2436398.  The ALTIS Foundation was incorporated on July 10, 2020.



Thanks ... let's do the work!
