Barbells For Boobs is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization dedicated to the early detection of breast cancer, with an emphasis on women under the age of 40 and men.
Inspired by athletes everywhere, local communities come together and raise funds to help B4B detect potentially life threatening breast cancer occurrences.
Here’s what I’m doing:
On November 5, I’ll be participating in Crossfit Sun‘s Barbells For Boobs event, where I’ll be joining others in the workout called, “Grace.”
That’s 30 clean and jerks with 135 pounds for time. ie: Pick the barbell up off the floor (clean) and push it up overhead (jerk). That’s a lot of weight, a lot of times, as fast as possible. And I’ll dress appropriately to suit the occasion (see video and photo from last year.)
Why? Because we’re raising money to provide breast cancer screenings for those who otherwise wouldn’t have access to them.
Last year, our little CrossFit Sun community raised more money than any other gym ON THE PLANET. This year, you can be a part of our World Championship team!
So I’m asking you to join us, if you’d be willing.
HERE’S THE DEAL:
If you’d like to help, you can kick in a few bucks (or more than a few–far be it from me to limit you in any way) and…
For every $10.00 you donate on my fundraising page, I’ll do one pull-up–and video every one of ’em.
Every 8 pull-ups ($80) equals one breast cancer screening for someone in need.
Needless to say, this is a great, important, and worthy cause.
So, please donate and make me work for it!
Here’s a video of my first 10 pull ups…only 490 to go!
