Levi Kissick-Ponga began fundraising for us back in May when he raised an incredible $3000 by completing 3000 burpees! Now, he’s looking to take his fundraising efforts to a whole other level by aiming to raise over $6,800 for us AND break a Guinness World Record for the highest number of standard burpee’s in a 12 hour period at the same time!
The world record currently stands at 6800 burpees and Levi is looking to beat this number! You can show your support for Levi’s mammoth effort by donating to his Do It For Cancer page here.
UPDATE: He did it!
Levi spent 12 hours doing burpees – and he smashed the world record! Previously it sat at 6,800 burpees, but Levi managed a whopping 7,219, that's 419 more than the previous record! And best of all – he raised an amazing $8,000+ for us in the process!! Well done, Levi – we’re so thankful for your support and very proud of you for what you’ve achieved.
