Barbells for Boobs
What is Barbells for Boobs?
Barbells for Boobs is dedicated to the early detection of breast cancer,
with an emphasis on women and men under 40. The funds raised by boxes
all over the country are used to provide mammograms to those that are
unable to afford one on their own.
To date, Barbells for Boobs has helped over 6,500 people and has helped
to detect 76 cases of breast cancer. These cases may otherwise have gone
unnoticed. Early detection is the key and the focus of Barbells for Boobs.
Everyone has the RIGHT to know if they are living with breast cancer and
everyone deserves the right to FIGHT it.
How Our Box Is Involved
Our CrossFit box is our family. Together we have formed a community like
no other. We are not just people who work out together; we are friends,
brothers and sisters who help one another through challenges, both big
and small. We cheer each other on as we finally get that box jump or kipping
pull up and we give our shoulders, ears and time as we struggle through
the challenges life throws our way. It is truly a privilege to watch and
be a part of such a community. Individually we are strong, but together
we are unstoppable.
It is for this reason that we are helping to fundraise for this great cause.
Last year we were able to provide 31 mammograms and this year we hope
to well exceed that number.
Join Our TEAM & Get Involved
This year we want to involve everyone in this day and to show the true
strength of our community—while getting in a great workout, of course.
We will be doing Fight Gone Bad, as well as Grace. You may do one or both;
however, for Fight Gone Bad, we are encouraging you to have your friends
and family pledge donations based on the workout.
For example, if your mom pledges to donate 25 cents for each rep you complete
and you complete 242 reps for FGB, then she would donate $60.50. This
is a fun way to have your friends and family cheer you on, while also
helping out an awesome cause. No amount is too small and, of course you
or they can always just make a flat donation. If you’d rather not
work out, we’d still like it if you, your family, and your friends
would join us in cheering on our athletes as they show breast cancer just
what they think of it.
Donations can be made in any amount on our fundraising page here:
You can make donations starting today and even after the event.
Once on the page, hit the “Donate Now” button. Donations can
also be made via Cash or check.
As you know, we will be turning the Box pink for the event, and this includes
our shirts (well, the shirts themselves aren’t pink, but our logo
will be!). We will have the designs posted soon and the shirts will be
available the week leading up to and at our Event on 10/25. It’s
important to pre-order your shirt if you’d like one, since there
will only be a limited number available at the event. As an added way
to help this great cause, $5 from each shirt sold will go towards our
gym donation to Barbells for Boobs.
This event will be one for all to enjoy with both food and fun. Please
help us to make this a rockin’ event by coming out to show your support.
We “Fear Nothing and Face Everything” and together we will
help those in our larger community across the country kick breast cancer’s ass!
