Participants - either solo or as a team (there is no limit to the number of people on your team) - have one hour to complete a Burpee Challenge based on the number of jars of peanut/nut butter collected during our drive from February 14 through March 31:
Individuals: Do 1 burpee for every 10 jars collected
Teams of 2-3: 1 burpee for every 5 jars collected
Teams of 4+: 1 burpee for each jar collected
The last time we hosted this challenge, we collected 827 jars of peanut/nut butter - this year we are aiming to collect 1,000! All jars will be donated to the food pantry at the Veterans Base Camp.
Want to be a part of the fun, but don't want to do a lot of Burpees? No problem! You can still register and take advantage of all the perks - including helping food pantries that serve veterans stock-up on an important staple.
Cost is $30 per person -- all proceeds donated will be donated to Homes for the Brave to support their efforts to help Connecticut’s Veterans and other individuals experiencing homelessness to return to meaningful, productive lives.
Participants receive 5 raffle tickets for a chance to win some great prizes, as well as a ticket for food and drink at the GastroPark (located just around the corner from Viking Athletics where the Burpee Challenge will be hosted).
