Snap Fitness Supporting New Futures for Young People

We are seriously grateful to Burpees for BYS sponsors Snap Fitness for supporting new futures for young people.

Snap Fitness got behind our recent campaign to support Dave the Trainer in the Burpees for BYS Guinness World Record Challenge.

It’s incredibly emotional for me to know that so many people from one community are willing to step up and make a difference for this cause. -Dave the Trainer

On Saturday 6 April 2019, during Queensland Youth Week, we attempted to break the record for ‘Most people performing burpees’.

Snap Fitness sponsored Burpees for BYS and pledged participants for the Guinness World Record Challenge. The energy, support and fundraising efforts were amazing! Although we did not break the Guinness World Record, over 400 people came together to take a stand against youth homelessness and it was the biggest and most successful awareness raising campaigns to date!

A massive THANK YOU to Snap Fitness and everyone who participated and donated, we were able to raise over $10,000! The funds raised from the event will go towards supporting young people accessing BYS services and will provide food, medical, accommodation and Get On Your Feet backpacks.

Check out just one of the amazing videos they put together from the day!
