‘Burpees for Bucks’ to raise funds for Children’s Hospital


Marlborough – A “Burpees for Bucks” fundraiser will be held Sunday, March 31, from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m., at PrettyFit Athletics, 61 Lacombe St., Marlborough.

Monies raised will go towards the fundraising efforts of a gym member who will be running this year’s Boston Marathon as part of the Boston Children’s Hospital team.

Participants will warm up for the first half hour before doing the most burpees they can from 10:30 -11:30 a.m.  (A burpee or squat thrust, is a full body exercise used in strength training and as an aerobic exercise.) Participants are asked to donate $25 as an entry fee and to ask their families and friends to support them. (Venmo (@JackieMiele), cash or check.)

There will also be a raffle and bake sale.
