The 50 Yard Challenge – Amazing Grass-Roots Effort That Has Spread Across the County – Including Here in WNY!
This is just an amazing idea.
Have you heard about the 50-yard challenge? It was started by a Rodney Smith, Jr. from Huntsville, Alabama. Smith started a company called Raising Men Lawn Care Service with a goal to help his community. The 50 yard challenge soon started – and it has nothing to do with football or any other sport. He’s talking about 50 lawns – cutting the grass for 50 people who need help. He’s talking about helping the elderly, disabled, single parents and veterans! Folks – kids and adults – sign up and take the challenge and then work to help 50 people by cutting their lawn.
The initiative has spread across the country. According the the Lawn Care website – 5000 lawns have been cut! 445 kids have joined!
Including Nicolas from Niagara Falls! Way to go, buddy!!!

Rodney Smith, Jr. – what an amazing thing you’ve started!! I hope it continues to spread!
