Burpee marathon raises money for charities

In Lincoln, Nebraska, two friends wanted to celebrate their birthdays by helping others in the community, so they organized an event called Burpee Like BA and got to work doing burpees ... over and over and over.

Hundreds of people turned out to watch the guys attempt this feat of strength, with many of the onlookers doing burpees themselves to add to the total.

The goal was to raise $45,036 in 45 hours and 36 minutes by doing 45,036 burpees.

And, all the money raised will go to charities around Lincoln, including the YMCA, as well as the fire and police departments.
