Burpees For Charity

I am taking part in an BIG challenge, organized by Baylea Wilkins, to raise $100 000 for Kidsport. I, along with 49 other people, are each trying to raise $2000 by August 1st. How can you help? Any donation, no matter how small (or big!), will help. Please, click on the donate button to help me get to my goal. To repay your kindness, on August 1st, I have promised to do 1000 burpees... in a row... for real!

KidSport works with children and families to "get local kids and youth off the sidelines and onto the playing field. By supporting Kidsport we all win.  When young people have access to sport they improve in school, become stronger leaders, create safer communities, ignite inclusivity and fuel healthy habits for life."

From age 6-14 I played minor hockey.  All through high school I played basketball, football and track.  From age 19-48 I was training and coaching martial arts.  I'm now 53 and for the last 4 years my passion has been barbells, kettlebells, HIIT and functional fitness.  I have been fortunate that sport and organized play have always been a part of my life. Playing sports as a kid had a huge  impact on shaping who I am today. And as an adult, sport and play keeps me physically fit and mentally sane.

Through organized sport and play kids learn goal setting, team work, perseverance, cooperation, compromise, and build confidence. I want every child to have the opportunity to play sports, and KidSport makes that possible.

KidSport provides grants to help cover the costs for registration fees so that all kids aged 18 and under have an opportunity to play a season of sport. So far KidSport has helped over 13,000 kids in Greater Victoria.

Please consider donating to my challenge.  100% of all money raised will go to KidSport. Tax receipts are provided for donations.
