Burpees for Charity in support of KidSport Greater Victoria
Posted by KidSport Victoria/Greater Victoria
A brand new and ambitious fundraiser has been taking shape locally over the last two months.
Led by Baylea Wilkins of BWF, 50 committed individuals have each signed on to complete either 500 or 1000 burpees in a single day. Each is using this epic fitness challenge as a platform to raise an impressive $2000 each, for a grand total goal of $100,000. Nearly $40,000 has already been raised as of early July!
On August 1, challenge participants will come together and Glenlyon Norfolk Junior School (1701 Beach Drive) for a giant day of intense work for a good cause. $100,000 raised would mean access to organized sport for an additional 345 kids, through KidSport Greater Victoria’s core work – the provision of season-of-sport registration grants for local children and youth in financial need.
Can you help them reach their goal? Please donate directly to Baylea’s individual fundraising page at the link above. (Donations $20+ are tax deductible.)
