What is Burpees for BYS?
Burpees for BYS is an annual BYS fundraising campaign, initiated by Dave the Trainer in 2017.
In 2017, Dave Kramer (Dave the Trainer) completed 3000 burpees in 8.5 hours to raise awareness of youth homelessness in Brisbane. Dave raised over $6000 for BYS in 2017 and again in 2018, through donations from individuals and organisations.
In 2019, we are aiming to broaden participation in Burpees for BYS to increase awareness of youth homelessness in Brisbane and raise funds to build new futures for young people facing homelessness.
“Our fitness community cares about making a difference, and as a unit we will burpee and fundraise our way to ending youth homelessness.” Dave
The 2019 Burpees for BYS Challenge will coincide with:
- Youth Homelessness Matters Day – April 2019
The 2019 fundraising target for Burpees for BYS is $15,000.
