Local Fitness Center Raises Funds for Beebe Oncology Services with Unique Twist

Burpees for Beebe check presentation


Adam Howard, Body Shop Fitness, and Bruce Clayton, TriCoach, recently presented the Beebe Medical Foundation with a check for $6,000 to support Beebe Healthcare’s Oncology Services.

The funds were raised through their Burpees for Beebe challenge, where Howard and Clayton each did 100 burpees for 100 days in a row, and their Thanksgiving BRUteCamp, a bootcamp style workout held Thanksgiving morning on the beach in Rehoboth. Howard and Clayton collected donations in support of their efforts, raising a total of $6,000 for patients in Sussex County.

“We are honored to receive the proceeds from Adam and Bruce’s efforts again this year! Their annual BRUtecamp has been a tradition for many years, and adding the Burpees for Beebe component really took things up a notch this year. We’ve seen this program grow and feel honored to be the annual recipient of the proceeds,” said Amy Keller, Beebe Medical Foundation Event Coordinator. “We feel fortunate to have community partners, like Adam and Bruce, helping us to save and change lives in Sussex County!”
