VMI raising money during burpee pushup challenge

Posted: Updated:
LEXINGTON, VA -

VMI is getting ready for an event later today.

The freshman, or "rats" as they're called, will gather in the Old Barracks Courtyard tonight 11:15.

All of them will do as many burpee pushups as they can in seven minutes.

The goal is for them to bond and raise $30-thousand dollars for the Military Warriors Support Foundation, an organization that provides housing for wounded veterans.

"We didn't know anybody here and now it's inspiring to see all of all of us come together and do something like this," said Ryan Comper who helped organize the event.
