Proceeds go toward women's health research at the Magee-Womens Research Institute

(WKBN) – Struthers native and musician Michael Annichine, who runs the leading women’s health care facility in Pittsburgh, has come up with a way to honor mothers and raise money.

It’s called the “Moms Rock Challenge.”

Annichine is the CEO of the Magee-Womens Research Institute and Foundation, which had to cancel its benefit rock concert.

Now, he wants people to do their own “Moms Rock” videos, post them using #MomsRockChallenge and make a donation.

“We want people to post the video on social media dedicating a song to their mother or any mom in their life. Doesn’t have to be their mom. They could have a sister that’s a mom, they could have a wife that’s a mom,” he said.

Annichine wants people to get as creative as possible — they can either use an existing song, maybe dance to it, or write their own song.

He’s hoping the whole concept goes viral.
