Partnering with non-profit organizations and community involvement have always been a significant part of Auger & Auger’s mission. And one of our favorite ways to give back is at one of the most action-packed, heart-pumping local charity events—Beers & Burpees in Charlotte, North Carolina!
This year marks the sixth year in a row that Auger & Auger has sponsored the Beers & Burpees Charity Event. On October 1, 2022, over 1,125 athletes, 70 participating gyms, 40 sponsoring companies, and 75 volunteers came together to work out and raise money for The Changing Lives Together Foundation, a non-profit organization dedicated to enriching and changing the lives of special needs kids and kids with life-altering medical circumstances in the greater Charlotte community.
In total, over $173,014 was raised for The Changing Lives Together Foundation! Thank you to all who participated and donated. The Beers & Burpees Charity Event is one of our favorite community events and we look forward to it every year.
Sponsoring the Adaptive Athlete Division
For the past few years, Auger & Auger has sponsored the Adaptive Athlete Division of the Beer & Burpees Charity Event. This 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 the Beers & Burpees Charity Event helps raise awareness of the importance and need for adaptive sports and recreational opportunities within our local communities.
At Auger & Auger, we are advocates for individuals with disabilities. Since 2015, Auger & Auger has donated over $40,000 to students as part of the Auger & Auger Disability Scholarship, a $1,000 award that helps bright students who have overcome personal and medical hardships pursue an undergraduate college degree.
