Thank you to each person both in the Fukumoto Fitness community (staff and members) and those who are friends of our members for being so generous and making a difference in the lives of children! This is about way more than fitness and exercising and we’re excited that you guys all get it.
Thanks also to the Herald newspaper and CJOB for help spreading the word in the community!

There were many amazing stories that came out of this such as:
-someone getting their students involved to do burpees at school
-someone showing their mechanic in the shop how to do a burpee right on the floor
-performing over 32,000 burpees together in 2 weeks (and more on own!)
-a kid hosting a bake sale and doing burpees to send 1 kid to camp
-someone doing burpees in their dress clothes!
-a few surprise overwhelming single donations of $1000 and even $2500!
We hope to update you with information, photos, and video from how your money was put to work this summer at Camp Discovery so please stay tuned.
Proud to know you all and thank you for your giving of time, sweat, resources to help because we can. We are a small community but we are strong and definitely BETTER TOGETHER!
