Colleen Eggers and her colleagues at the Advocate Good Samaritan Wellness Center are sore, but happy. Every year they get the members to sponsor them in the Burpee Challenge. With all proceeds going this year to the Downers Grove Area FISH Food Pantry, the members pledged $1.00 per Burpee completed by each of the staff. By the end of the day on December 15th, they had completed enough Burpees to donate $1,307 to the pantry. In addition 107 pairs of socks, 2 pairs of leg warmers, 51 hats, 5 scarves and 79 pairs of mittens were collected-almost 32 pounds of warmth altogether.
