Mike Ditka Proposes Gridiron Prancercise for Gridiron Greats
WISCONSINREPORT.COM [WiscReport.com] (12/30/2014) VideoJuice.com, the first-of-its-kind social fundraising platform, has announced that Mike Ditka, former NFL player, coach and television commentator will Prancercise during Super Bowl week if he raises $100,000 for Gridiron Greats Assistance Fund, Inc. (GGAF).
The three-time Super Bowl champion will be joined by Joanna Rohrback, the founder of Prancercise who has become a YouTube legend with more than 10 million views for the exercise defined as a “springy, rhythmic way of moving forward, similar to a horse’s gait and ideally induced by elation.”
To benefit the charity, Ditka also promises that if GGAF raises more than $100,000, he will enlist his beloved NFL friends to Prancercise with him and Joanna during Super Bowl week in Arizona.
In a short video featured on VideoJuice.com, Ditka announces the challenge and adds that the highest bidder and a guest will be invited to the Ditka & Jaws Cigar Party on January 29th. The exclusive event will feature a variety of premium cigars, single-malt scotches and football legends including current and retired NFL players and ESPN personalities. The highest bidder will also be treated to a private dinner with Ditka and Rohrback and featured in an actual Prancercise video.
“Gridiron Greats Assistance Fund is near and dear to my heart,” Ditka said. “I wanted to do something different and exciting to help our NFL heroes get back on their feet. What better way to engage people and encourage them to donate than by proposing a challenge in which I will Prancercise during Super Bowl week.”
The proceeds donated to GGAF through VideoJuice.com will benefit retired NFL players, providing hands-on assistance to help with hardships faced after football. Donations will help provide retired players with medical and financial assistance, as well as coordination of services for food, automotive payments and childcare.
