By the end of those 14 minutes alone, we raised $2002.85! We’ll have an official total after November 7th, the submission deadline for all the outside pledges from friends and family. 100% of the proceeds go to SCCA.

We also celebrated the accomplishments of some standout athletes and handed out a few prizes (passes to Banya 5 and tickets to the movies to unwind after a job well-done):

Jennifer W. completed the Most Burpees in 7 Minutes at 123 burpees!

The numbers are in and our grand fundraising total is $3448.57!!! That’s an additional $1445.72 to what we raised the day of the event.

Stefanie K. won the prize for collecting the Most Pledges at 15 people, so it’s no surprise that she is also our Top Overall Fundraiser!
