A boot camp class in Lincoln found a unique way to support a woman battling a deadly disease.

Breathing for Becky is a fundraiser for Becky Walstead, who recently had a double lung transplant after living with Cystic Fibrosis for most of her life.

Even though Becky has insurance, her family will still have some big medical bills to pay.

Her sister-in-law Lynn works out at Body OverHall in Lincoln, where the trainers were happy to lend a hand.

Participants were asked to bring a donation and a pumpkin and be ready to sweat.

Becky's brother-in-law says they are so thankful for all the support.

Becky is expected to make a full recovery.

Her family is holding another fundraiser next Sunday, November 6th at the Plattsmouth, Nebraska Eagles Club from 1:00 until 7:00.

It features a silent auction, a chili feed and a hunting rifle raffle.
