October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. This year we are participating in Barbells for Boobs by hosting an “Amazing Grace” event and fundraising to support this great cause. Barbells for Boobs raises money to help provide services for the early detection of breast cancer to those without access to services. There are a few ways you can help:
1) Join our team and create a fundraising page. Use the link below to learn more and to set up your page. Every $80 pays for 1 mammogram, and when you raise $80 you earn a T-shirt that shows your support. Raise $400 and get a hoodie and wrist wraps, knowing that 5 more people will have access to services.
2) Don’t like asking people to donate? Simple–just make a donation yourself to our team or to one of the many folks fundraising on our team. Every dollar counts!
3) Participate in the “Amazing Grace” workout on October 4th at the gym. The workout is 30 clean & jerks for time, and anyone is welcome to scale. Suggested donation for those not fundraising is $10 to participate; all donations will go to our team’s fundraiser.
4) Not sure you want to do the workout? Come by and support the event and cheer on your fellow gym-goers. We have some generous local businesses donating prizes, and you can purchase raffle tickets (all money goes to our fundraiser) to win them! Stay tuned for details!
Please ask your coaches if you have questions or contact us via the website.
We thank all of you in advance for helping us to support Barbells for Boobs!
