Man Breaks Guinness Book of World Records with 10,000 Burpees in 24 hours

GREENWOOD, SC - On Saturday May 17, 2014 at 4pm, extreme athlete Cameron Dorn completed his attempts to break two athletic world records for the most burpees performed in both 12 and 24 hours. He began on Friday May 16th at 4pm and ended at 4pm Saturday.

Viewers around the world watched a YouTube live stream of Cameron breaking the records from his hometown of Greenwood, South Carolina. The previous record for 12 hours was 5,000 burpees. According to accredited trainers monitoring the event, Cameron completed 5,657 burpees in 12 hours and in 10,105 burpees in 24 hours.

Cameron, a 2x Endurance Athlete Collegiate National Champion, set the goal of breaking the records in efforts to raise money that will benefit Cameron’s alma mater, Ware Shoals High School, and the Seeds of Hope School in Huaraz, Peru. Dorn commented on his Go Fund Me page:

We will be able to benefit Ware Shoals High School, providing their grassroots cross-country team with clothing and equipment. Another school we will be helping is the Seeds of Hope school in Huaraz, Peru. We will provide them academic materials, clothing and personal hygiene products. We will also establish a pen pal program, giving students at both schools the opportunity to learn about each other and to improve their language skills and enrich their cultural knowledge.

Dorn also stated, in an exclusive interview with Fun Bunch Creations, “[The challenge] was the hardest thing ever. But I did it. Now the only thing left to do is reward the children and see them happy. I’m proud of my accomplishment, but I can’t wait to work with the kids. That’s the real payoff and the real reward.”

Dorn also hopes that in the future one of the children his efforts benefit will be able to break his record and keep the goodwill moving forward.

As of 5pm Saturday, Cameron has raised $10,620. To donate or learn more, please visit http://www.gofundme.com/burpeeworldrecord
