Cameron Dorn Greenwood’s Guinness Record Holder Back In The Spotlight
In a new book titled “Flowers for the Dead,” Author Barbara Copperthwaite pits her fictional protagonist “Adam” against our very own Cameron Dorn.
Cameron Dorn, Lander Alum and Waterloo, SC native, broke the world record for burpees back in May 2014. Cameron Dorn, president of Suitcase of Courage, said at the time that he was motivated by a need. Not his, but the needs of school children – in Ware Shoals and Peru. Dorn said he became determined to raise $10,000 to help the children in need. His plan: he would do 10,000 burpees. This was a daunting challenge. Each burpee burns three calories. In fact, after 10,105, Cameron lost over 10 pounds in 24 hours. Cameron broke the burpee world record on May 17, 2014. And he raised over the $10,000 he sought to raise. Greenwood Calendar recorded the 24-hour video for Guinness World Records.
Author Barbara Copperthwaite has a little fun with Cameron Dorn. Check out this page from her book Flowers for the Dead. Cameron was notified about this by a friend, and he and some of his friends had some fun with it on Cameron’s facebook page. Cameron’s friend Bob Chambers wrote, “If a serial killer breaks your Guinness world burpee record in complete silence and at home, did it really happen? I think not.”
