A Patchogue resident raised money for a good cause by doing 2,000 pullups in 12 hours.
Nick Roalef, also known as "Ninja Nick," flexed his muscles to raise money for a new wheelchair-accessible vehicle for the Suffolk AHRC.
It will help people with intellectual and developmental disabilities to engagement programs across Long Island.
Roalef, who recently competed on "American Ninja Warrior," says the challenge combings his passions and create an impact in the community.
"I see people overcoming obstacles, overcoming challenges," Roalef says. "It inspires me to try and do my best and so I've put one of my unique talents to the test."
According to the organization, over half of the $70,000 has already been reached.
