Coach Divine, Melanie Sliwka, Greg Amundson, Catherine Divine, Jim Brault and Elizabeth Fulop set a New World Record for the most burpees by a mixed team in 24 hours. They not only broke the record of 14,000, they CRUSHED IT by doing 35,393 burpees! Why? To raise awareness that we lose 22 veterans each day due to posttraumatic stress, and to raise money to help them.
