It is a totally amazing experience when you see your boot camp participants come together like family! On March 1, Gaia Fit Charleston held a Burpee Challenge at the end of our regular Saturday a.m. boot camp class. The class participants came together to support a fellow boot camper, Amanda, raise money for the ALLY Foundation on her journey to the Boston Marathon.
The Burpee Challenge participants competed as individuals, partners, or in groups of three. They completed as many burpees as they could in two minutes. Then rested 1 minute and topped it off by completed 42 burpees as fast as they could. These aren't just random numbers. They hold significance in Amanda's support for the ALLY Foundation.
As a result of our Gaia Fit family coming together to support one of our Sisters in Sweat, Amanda has over $400 more to donate to the ALLY Foundation.
In addition to our boot campers participating, the Daniel Island Moms in Business and other local Charleston area business also showed extreme generosity for the event. We were able to reward our challengers for their generous contributions and physical efforts with the following:
Good Luck at the Boston Marathon Amanda! We will be cheering you on all the way!
