Burpees for BYS is back in 2019 and this year we've really ramped things up!

On Saturday 6 April 2019, Brisbane Youth Service will break the Guinness World Record for the most people doing burpees to raise awareness of youth homelessness in our community.

We just need 1,500 people to come along and bust out some burpees and the record will be ours!


Burpees for BYS is an annual Brisbane Youth Service campaign, started by Dave the Trainer in 2017. Each year Dave has completed nearly 3,000 burpees by himself in one day to raise much-needed funds.

“I believe, as a community, we can create a world where young people’s challenges are understood, where they are supported and empowered to live an inspiring life. Together, let’s take a stand against youth homelessness and show young people that we care.” -- Dave

This year we are looking for individuals and groups we can count on (and literally count in) our Guinness World Record attempt.
