‘Planking off’ for a good cause

RICHMOND, Va. (WRIC) — The VCU Massey Cancer Center “Plank Off” is happening Friday night at Stony Point Fashion Park. 8News’ Amy Lacey is emceeing the event.

In case you don’t know what a plank is — it’s an exercise where you balance on your forearms and toes.

Pure Barre Studios in the near West End and Short Pump has teams in place — with each competitor seeing who can hold this difficult pose for ten minutes.
