Burpee Bounce Back

My Activity Tracking

490
Burpees

My target 450 Burpees

I'm fundraising for...

Three in four Australians will experience a mental health challenge by the time they turn 25. Orygen works with young people, their families and friends, to develop new, positive approaches to preventing and treating mental disorders.

It’s been a challenging year for us all, and most of us could probably use some help in bouncing back towards a more positive state of mind.

That’s why this October I'm joining the Burpee Bounce Back Challenge – I'll be helping my own mental health by increasing my physical activity, and helping others by fundraising for mental health research so that young Aussies whose mental health isn’t going great can bounce back too.

Please help me by giving whatever you can. The more people that know about Orygen, the greater their impact, so please also spread the word by sharing my page with your friends and family. Thank you in advance for your generosity, it means a lot!

Last Day

Friday 30th Oct
What a crazy couple of weeks...busy work....lockdown release....year 12 exams....and fitting in these burpees when I can.   I will smash through the burpee target, but almost at my fundraising target - so a last shout out today to all the amazing humans I know to contribute to the amazing work we do here at Orygen :) 

Two Days to Go

Thursday 29th Oct
Ok so last two days and I don't think I will be keen to do a burpee in the near future !  I have so enjoyed reading everyone's messages of support - what an amazing bunch of humans I know.  Now trying to smash through the fundraising target and celebrate at the end of Friday.  Yesterday Melbourne was released from lock down so all in all its been a pretty good week !  Back to the burpees and chatting to everyone about the wonderful work we do here at Orygen :)

Day 7 - A long day

Tuesday 20th Oct
Today was a day that showed me why I am working so hard to raise money to support the work that we are doing at Orygen.  A phone call from a close friend that her child was struggling with the return to school and all I could do was listen and be there for her - how hard this year has been for all our kids.  My daughter is in year 12 and today they had a day of 'non valedictory', where they could where the outfit they would have worn to this special dinner to school, while a lovely photo moment it was hard to see her go off making the best of what this year has brought us, yet again.  But onwards she went encouraging all her friends, many of which were suffering prior to covid and now more than ever need support.   
Again I am humbled my the generosity and messages of support from all the amazing humans I know that are contributing to this challenge and supporting the work we do - thank you xx 

Day 5

Sunday 18th Oct
Weekend  shenanigans meant I had to smash out all of today’s burpees in one go ....done and exhausted but done:) only $88 off my second fundraising target . So grateful to everyone who has kindly donated ....looking for those last amazing humans to push it to $1k, night everyone will sleep well from all that exercise this weekend x 

Day 3

Friday 16th Oct
Wow I am overwhelmed by the lovely messages people are sending and their generosity during such a hard time. Burpees getting easy to do thank goodness too :) bring in the weekend and smashing through more burpees and our target ! 

Day 2 - Burpees in the Rain

Thursday 15th Oct
Super busy day and could only get out when the rain started - but that didn't stop us , Tay and I in the rain videoing me doing burpees.....and then we had to run home because the rain came down hard !   
A very big laugh and even though I still finding these burpees hard, we had lots of fun :)

Day 1 Smashed
