Burpees for Boobies

Fellow New England Spahten, Ellen is organizing a fund raiser that sounds right up our alley, and I promised to put it out there for the Spahtens … unfortunately, it’s the same day as the Sunday Spartan Race at Fenway, so I personally can’t make it, but many of you Saturday racers may be able to …


What do Spahtens love? BURPEES!!! and what else do we love?? BOOBIES! We either have them ourselves or appreciate them on others, right? Sooooo… for the few Spahtens out there who are not doing Fenway on Sunday, November 18th, here is an option for you to get your burpees in, support a good cause and do both with some amazing peeps!

This is a unique fundraising event for the fight against breast cancer. We’ve all heard of and/or done Barbells for Boobies.. but this takes it to a whole new level: 1 mile of burpee broad jumps. If you want to participate but are discouraged about the distance then feel free to team up and make it a relay!
The event will be held on November 18th at 12:30pm at the Spec Pond football field in Wilbraham, MA and all they are asking for a $5 minimum donation. We strongly recommend that you bring gloves and plenty of water. It will be cold so dress accordingly.
This will NOT be a fancy event, just bunch of folks who love boobies and hate burpees getting together for the cause! Feel free to invite your neighbors, friends, and family. If you cannot attend but wish to make a donation, we appreciate all the help we can get.

P.S. Fundraising suggestion: Ask for sponsors! Ask family, friends, co-workers, neighbors…whoever to pledge 5-10 cents per burpee.


Grand Prize- 1 month free membership at CrossFit Iron Will (100 Verge St. Springfield) free Crossfit!!??? REALLY!!!!

1st runner up- 1 hour massage gift certificate from The Massage Clinic (2341 Boston Road Wilbraham, MA 01095)

I know many of you aren’t local to this event so the prizes may not mean as much, feel free to throw them back in the pot if you win because seriously – are you REALLY gonna do a mile of burpees for a PRIZE??
You are gonna do it because YOU CAN!
Because you eat burpees for breakfast!!!
Because you are SPARTA!! AROO!!!!
