I issued a challenge to the world–I’ll do burpees daily for those who help me raise money for Miles of Love.
Yesterday I got 50 dolla, no holla, from Coupon Katie. Today I knocked out
50 51 burpees. I’m better at counting at the end than I am at the beginning.
Video proof below.
I’m not very good at burpees. Probably because I hate burpees with all of my soul. I’ll get better though…if someone pays to see it.
If I’ve ever done anything to tick you off (and that’s pretty much all of you), now’s your chance to get me back.
I’m doing the Space Coast Marathon again this year, even though I said I’d never do another marathon. I’m doing this to raise money for Miles of Love, which is a local charity a friend of mine started. The MOL mission is to provide support to local families who have sick kids. What I love about this organization is that it’s local, and it’s super-efficient. MOL has set up relationships with bigger organizations to vet recipients to help eliminate waste and fraud. They do all kinds of things for these families–anything from providing gas cards to help them get back and forth to the hospital to buying gifts for the kids themselves.
So the big question is, how can you use this situation to dole out punishment to me? Here’s how it works…
Every day, from not until ???? I’ll be doing a burpee* for every dollar I receive in donations. $20 = 20 burpees. $100 = 100 burpees. If you’ve ever done 100 burpees, you know that’s some serious punishment. I’ll video these and make long-distance dedications Casey Kasem style to those who help me raise funds.
So let me have it. You can click here to make a donation. Click early, click often.
* Burpees will be without the pushup at the bottom, but will include a jump and over-the-head hand clap.
