Fundraiser: Burpees for Balls to raise money for testicular cancer research!

Hi All,

A group of students at the college where I teach and me are trying to put together a little fundraiser for cancer research. The students are all female and wanted to concentrate on testicular cancer research, hence the name: Burpees for Balls. If anyone is interested, please drop me a line: splatek@gmail.com or check out the page: http://burpees4balls.blogspot.com/

The idea is to run this like a Relay for Life type of event, but instead of running and walking for 24 hours, we hope to get teams doing burpees for 2 hours.

Event is being held in Lawrenceville/Suwanee GA, but satellite sites could also be cool. We have at least some interest from a colleague in Philadelphia, for example.

Cheers,
Sp

Howdy, We've not made shirts yet, but will do soon. It's a matter of getting some students to do some work ;-)

If you are interested and around ATL, email me: splatek@gmail.com if you are interested but not near ATL, email me anyhow to talk about setting up a satellite event.

Thanks for the interest.

I await burpees for boobs as well. Bless your alliterative little heart. My affiliate had a "bucks 4 burpees" campaign where they did one or two burpees for every dollar donated. It turned into this:

(NOT work/family safe...for the sake of not traumatizing employees/children)
