BENEFITING: DEVEREUX FOUNDATION
EVENT DATE: Dec 19, 2014
Our mission at SUBU CrossFit is to improve our community through fitness. One of the most significant ways that we work toward accomplishing this goal is through our annual holiday fundraiser. Each year, we passionately commit to doing extra work inside and outside of the gym with the goal of being able to help an underprivileged portion of the Central Florida community. We call this fundraiser Burpees For Bucks.
During Burpees For Bucks our members collect monetary donations by promising to do one burpee for every dollar they raise. All of the money raised goes directly to providing a better Christmas for a group of people that would otherwise not have one.
This year, like last, we will be benefitting the kids of Devereux Florida. Our campaign last year was a huge success and far exceeded our expectations. We were able to buy all of the Christmas wish list items for all 12 of the kids at one of their programs and we even had enough money left over to send a few of the kids to summer camp.
Based on the success of last year we have raised the stakes for this year. Our goal for 2014 is to raise enough money to fulfill the Christmas wish lists of BOTH groups of kids at Devereux Florida's Orlando Campus instead of just one. Additionally, we have worked with Devereux to come up with some more permanent and meaningful contributions that will enable them to achieve greater success for years to come. Two of their motivation programs, the Rewards Store at SIPP and the Honor Club Room at RGC, are in need of some improvement and we would very much like to provide that for them. One thing that SUBU and Devereux have in common is the belief that hard work pays off. We are confident that we can accomplish these goals but we need your help. By participating in our fundraiser you will be helping these kids find some happiness during the holidays and, more importantly, you will be helping to provide them with the knowledge and skills necessary to create better lives for themselves in the future.
The fundraiser will culminate on December 19th at which point last minute donations may be received and all the burpees will be performed. This night will be celebratory in nature and anyone may attend. We strongly encourage you to be there, as we will be giving away some pretty sweet prizes during our raffle!
