To raise awareness of and funding for programs that help veterans with PTS. On average 22 veterans are committing suicide daily.
To CRUSH our goal of 22 MILLION burpees in 2019 and raise $250,000 for the Courage Foundation.
The funds raised will go towards putting veterans with PTS through 18-month integrated training programs that foster post-traumatic growth. The program kicks off March 2019
Navy SEAL style, Coach Divine finished over 105,000 burpees (in spite of a broken foot)!
Collectively, we finished at 15 Million Burpees strong and raised $160,000 in 2018…Hooyah!
But we haven’t finished, and Coach Divine is back at it and needs your help!
In 2019, we are extending this Burpees for Vets Campaign with a goal to smash through the 22 million burpee mark and way beyond (Navy SEAL style).
There is strength in numbers, and that is what it is going to take. Let’s make this a massive effort to help our veterans.
Everybody counts in the fight against PTS. Every burpee counts. Every pledge counts. It will take our whole community to reach this goal.
Whether you are a stay-at-home dad, a female executive, a Navy SEAL or anyone that is part of a team already in the workforce or as a special operator, we need you on the #BurpeesForVets team.
Pledge any amount at any frequency – 10 or 200 burpees a day, 25K or 100K burpees a year, no goal is too trivial or grand. We need all hands on deck for this challenge. Invite your friends, colleagues & even grandma to join in this year-long quest to perform 22 million burpees throughout 2019. Post your pledge & progress to #BurpeesForVets
