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, through donations from individuals and organisations.
In 2018, 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.
“Regardless of the brand we represent, we all stand for helping others live healthier and happier lives, and I truly believe that by coming together, we can create this impact through BurpeesforBYS. 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 2018 Burpees for BYS Challenge will open on 21 March 2018 for registrations and donations and the event will coincide with:
- Youth Homelessness Matters Day – Wednesday 18 April
The 2018 fundraising target for Burpees for BYS is $15,000.
