I’m so excited to support Food Allergy Dad, Mike Monroe, in his 3k Burpee Challenge. Mike always does amazing athletic challenges to raise funds for food allergies. On Jan 25th, he will complete 3000 “Burpees” in 12 hours or less to raise funds for food allergy research at Children’s National Medical Center (CNMC)! His goal is to raise $50K.
-Why I support CNMC: We all know the feeling of being in the hospital and there is nothing safe to eat for a person with celiac or food allergies. Well, CNMC actually feeds you safely in-patient and in the cafeteria with our meals! They truly “walk the walk and talk the talk” and they showed it via the action they took 6 years ago when they put One Dish Cuisine’s food in place to meet the needs of the Celiac & Food Allergy Community! I am all about people and organizations who take action…and don’t just give lip service. Words without action are just words and don’t change anything. Actions bring change.
What is a “burpee”? If you are not a fitness enthusiast; you might be wondering. We have provided a link below so you can see them performed by Mike. Doing 3,000 of them is quite a challenge! I always say, stop complaining and do something positive to fight your food allergy, celiac disease or autism. Mike is a shining example of that. If you don’t have the time to do actually go out and do something yourself, please consider supporting someone who is able to make the time and effort and raise funds for an important cause.
