May 2021 Challenge – This month’s challenge is focused on fuel (The Queen).  We will break our addiction to sugar by abstaining from ‘added sugar’ each day of the month.  That means, check EVERY food label before putting said food/drink into your month. Natural sugars are good in moderation (e.g. honey, fruit).  1 day w/o added sugar = 1 pt. 1 day w/o added sugar + Boot camp* = 2 pts. 

June 2021 Challenge starts Tuesday June 1st. The challenge is Burpees! How many can you do in a month? Platinum Level 6000, Gold Level 4500, Silver Level 4000, Bronze Level 3000. In addition to the 1st F, we will be tying in the 3rd F as well. We will be raising funds for Streets Ministries. For example, Tomb Raider has committed to paying one penny per burpee, and plans to do 6,000, which would be a $60 donation to Streets Ministries. HERE is the link to make your donation. Others can sponsor you as well. Let’s get fit while raising money for a great local cause.
