Each year, over 1,500 people come together in Charlotte to work out, drink beer, and raise money for the Changing Lives Together Foundation.
In case you can’t tell, community and giving back are a big part of Auger & Auger’s mission. And one of our favorite ways to give back is at one of the most fun, heart-pumping local charity events—Beers & Burpees in Charlotte!
This year marks the fifth year in a row that Auger & Auger is sponsoring the Beers & Burpees Charity Event. On October 2, 2021, over 80 local gyms will partner together to host the event where over 1,500 people will come together to work out, drink a little beer, and raise money for the Changing Lives Together (CLT) Foundation.
What is the Beers & Burpees Charity Event?
The 11th Annual Beers & Burpees Charity Event is an all-day event where teams of two complete three rounds of a workout that includes activities like a run, pull-ups, and, of course, burpees. The “workouts” are segmented by the following five divisions:
- Adaptive Athletes
- Kid’s Brownies & Burpees
Learn more about what the “workout” for each division entails here.
Auger & Auger sponsors the Adaptive Athlete division
Auger & Auger is once again sponsoring the Adaptive Athlete division at the $5k level of this year’s Beers & Burpees Charity Event. The Adaptive Athlete division is for individuals competing with various levels of ability, ranging from wheelchair-bound to amputees and cerebral palsy.
In North Carolina, over a million adults and children are living with some form of disability, impacting communities, livelihood, and health. The Adaptive Athlete division of Beers & Burpees helps raise awareness of the importance and need for adaptive sports and recreational opportunities within our local communities.
Registration for the Adaptive Athlete division is free for all adults and children who qualify. A truly inspiring and empowering experience, the Adaptive Athlete division is an inclusive environment for all, creating individual modifications for all who wish to participate.
At Auger & Auger, we are proud to sponsor the Adaptive Athlete division this year and look forward to meeting all the “competitors.” Learn more about the Adaptive Athlete division and/or register for the event here.
