I am so very happy to tell you that our 8th annual Burpees for Turkeys event was a success! Our goal this year was to raise $10,000 to help fight food insecurity in Maine. Through the efforts of our team and amazing community in Bangor AND Brunswick, Maine we raised $13,086 to help feed hungry Mainers.
We started this event in 2015 and that brings our total contribution to help fight food insecurity to over $78,000.
Thank you to everyone who contributed. Thank you to the trainers who did a bazillion burpees. Thank you to everyone who showed up in Facebook LIVE to heckle and support the trainers.
Thank you to the Good Shepherd Food Bank and United Way for all of the great work that you do to help Maine’s children and families.
1 in 5 children in Maine live with food insecurity meaning they lack the necessary nutrition to live a healthy lifestyle. The Good Shepherd Food Bank is able to feed a hungry child for an entire week with just $5. AMAZING.
Today, we raised enough money to feed 50 children for an entire year.
We are so proud of the impact that we are able to create through events like this. We are so proud to have the opportunity to scale this event to multiple locations through our franchising program. We are so proud of how our community comes together to help their neighbors.
Thanks again for all of your support! We all had blast. Starting to count down the days to Burpees for Turkeys next year.
