BURPEES FOR BOOBIES!
Thanks to all the athletes who came out to support our first BURPEES
FOR BOOBIES for the month of May. The first event was held,
Saturday, May 5 at ARMOR CROSSFIT in Ocoee.
The concept is awesome. Athletes
collect pledges for the number of
burpees they can do in two hours.
Several of the athletes at this first event
did more than 500 burpees and raised a
lot of money for COMPASSIONATE
HANDS AND HEARTS. Thanks
everyone for making this first event a huge success!
Our final BURPEES FOR BOOBIES event for the month of May 2012
was held at Cross
Fit Country in Oviedo. Thanks to all the athletes who gave it their all
for the cause. The high number of burpees for the day was 1001 in
two hours. The event raised money through pledges based on the
number of burpees an athlete could do. It was a very successful day.
Thanks to everyone who supported the day! And special thanks to
Wayne at CrossFit Country in Oviedo for hosting the event.
Our mission is to extend our hands and hearts to support those needing help battling
breast cancer by improving the quality of life for them and their families.
