Boot Camp 4 Backpacks Results – Get Fit, Have Fun, Make a Difference


Aug 26

COPPELL, TX. – August 23, 2010.  – After three sweaty August Saturdays of backpack collections in exchange for Boot Camp workouts, the Boot Camp 4 Backpacks fundraiser gathered over 150 backpacks and boxes of school supplies valuing over $2,500 donated to Coppell ISD schools. Get You In Shape, Coppell-based Fitness Boot Camp business, teamed up with other local businesses to sponsor this successful community-wide charitable event to collect and distribute necessary supplies for underprivileged students.

Participants either donated a backpack or one filled with supplies. Their donations not only gave assistance to local students, equipping them to succeed in the new school year, but also provided donors with a fun way to get fit while giving back.

“We are extremely pleased with the results of Boot Camp 4 Backpacks,” said Brad Linder, owner of Get You In Shape. “Our goals were to provide for local students in need, as well as engage our community in a fun way to get fit.  Both goals were accomplished and many people were helped in the process.”

 This charitable event consisted of backpack collections and Boot Camp workouts at Andy Brown East on August 7,14 and 21. More details and photos can be found at”

Here are a few pictures from the three dates in August.
