Be Kind: Parsippany mom raising money through planking for mental health awareness

PARSIPPANY — ABC Channel 7 News has been running a #BEKind campaign and Jennifer Pellecchia and her annual PlanksGiving fundraising event was featured in a segment last Friday.

Planks aren’t an easy exercise to accomplish, but one woman in Parsippany knows how to do them, and she’s raising a lot of money at the same time.

Pellecchia started PlanksGiving in 2012 to do a small part in this world to try to make a difference. She is a fitness professional, so planking is something that she used with her clients as a core exercise, but for Jennifer, it’s always been so much more.

Planking helps Jennifer “feel” at times when she feels numb and lost inside my illness. When she planks, it’s like a kind of meditation. It makes her feel strong physically and has taught her  strong mentally too.

In the past six years, she have raised over $25,000 for various causes through PlanksGiving, other physical challenges and by selling my artwork. Pellecchia is very blessed to have been shown a great deal of support from amazing friends along the way.

Jennifer Pellecchia is a wife, mother and fitness professional from Parsippany. Jennifer was recently featured on ABC News

She holds “Planksgiving” and other fitness events to raise money for mental health awareness.

Pellecchia said she’s already raised tens of thousands of dollars.
