I’m not physically capable of doing burpees. What do you recommend I do?
We know, burpees are tough! But you can still participate. You can do modified "elevated" burpees, or any portion of a burpee… like squats, pushups, or jumps. You can also get your pet, child, or friend to do the burpees for you!
Regardless of what you do, be sure to tag @burpeesforvets, say “Burpees For Vets Challenge” in your video intro, and use the hashtag #burpeesforvets.
Where do the donations go and are they tax-deductible?
Donations are tax-deductible. If credit card fees are covered, 100% of donations go to our nonprofit partners. No other processing fees are taken. Our donation platform, WeGive, works for free with optional tips. Learn more about the nonprofit partners involved and the impact of your dollar by visiting the "Impact" page on the BurpeesForVets website.
How should I time myself?
You can use a watch, a second piece of technology like a laptop, you can position yourself near a clock, you can do it in the kitchen and use a stove timer, or ask a friend to time you. If that’s not possible, then an estimate is fine. Depending on your speed you’ll probably get between 3 and 7 burpees done in 11 seconds.
How to get sponsored / What if I'm not able to donate $11?
That’s no problem, we’ll have other participants sponsor you! Simply follow the posting instructions and mention that $11 has been donated. We've got you covered!
