About the Event

45,036 burpees in 45 hours 36 minutes to raise $45,036 

Building a healthier community 1 burpee at a time!The idea is simple but the impact will be huge. We hope it will challenge, encourage and bless Lincoln and beyond. Will you join us?

How we got here

A few events collided in 2018 to give longtime friends Bo and Aksel this crazy idea. It started when Bo and his wife Jennifer completed their third Spartan race. Spartan has frequent burpee challenges that fueled the idea for Bo to recruit Aksel and a few other friends to do burpees for the year - 90,000 to be exact.


As 2019 began, the question arose – how can they put these burpees to use? The answer seemed to present itself when Crossroads Church launched their 'Build His  Church' campaign. Bo and Aksel decided to throw themselves a burpee birthday bash. They want "Burpee like  B.A." to be an event that would bless both Crossroads and the community of Lincoln. In April, Bo turns 45 and Aksel turns 36. Thus, the 45,036-challenge erupted.

What we're doing

Starting at 5:24 on Saturday, April 6th, Bo, Aksel, and all welcomed participants will begin doing burpees for 45 hours and 36 minutes. They will also host a burpee competition. Pre-register as an individual or a team to compete for a cash prize! See schedule for details. 

Burpee like B.A. is an event for the whole family!

This isn't just a burpee challenge. During our FIT & FUNd live event, cheer on those who are doing burpees while enjoying an afternoon of food trucks, silent auction items, a KFRX live broadcast and more. Bring the kids for face painting, bounce houses and balloon art! Be sure to pre-register for the competition for  an exclusive t-shirt! FIT & FUNd will be from 11:00am to 3:00pm.

Meet BA

Dr. Bo, as he is known, is owner of Trinity Chiropractic. He enjoys a physical challenge but also knows the value of taking time to sabbath. If not at Trinity, you can find him spending time with his family. He is married to Jennifer, and they have four kids, Eilam (12), Kale (9), Fallon (7) and Isley (4). Dr. Bo's heart behind this challenge is three-fold: (1) challenge people to go beyond what they think they can do (2) bless his local community (3) provide opportunity for others to experience a Spartan race.

Aksel is a hard-working business manager of LoLo’s Concessions and AAA Mobile Signs. He enjoys spending time outside, hiking and testing his physical/mental strength. Aksel does not give up once he puts his mind to something, and likes a good challenge! He also has a servants heart, and spends a lot of time serving God and serving others in the community. If you need help with something, he is always the man to call. He and his wife, Randi, look forward to what God has in store for their future. Aksel’s heart behind the campaign is to get the community involved in something active and also support the 'Build His Church' campaign at Crossroads. Not to mention bless some other local charitable organizations along the way.

Bo and Aksel would like to thank everyone who already has or will  put time, money, and energy into this event. Without you, we wold not even be able to attempt such an idea. A special thanks to Jennifer, Randi, Sean and Beth. Your encouragement, friendship and love drive us to go for all God has for us!

Burpee on, our friends. Burpee on!

Bo and Aksel
