In honour of a fighter woman.

Today - a fellow 12wbter for life and friend Julie Hoffman showed us what a champion she is! Many many months of training, organising, seeking donations and plain being awesome resulted in Hoffy's Burpee Challenge for Heartkids - a fundraiser to support heartkids in memory of her niece Stacey.

Today this fighter girl became a Guiness book of records champion! Most burpees in minute!

She then fought through an hour of burpees (UGH!) to complete 959 burpees in an hour - surrounded by family, friends and her community.

Did she break the record for burpees in an hour - no. And really - who cares.

She is a fighter woman. Three weeks of illness, and currently carrying a chest infection. Friends say she was hurting. She was doing it tough. But she would not say no. She fought on for the hour and showed us the tenacious fighter woman she is.

Fundraising for heartkids is likely to well exceed $30,000!

Julie - I am so proud to know you ! You went hard and you did us proud!
