We were absolutely thrilled with the turnout we had at our 2018 Barbells for Boobs fundraiser. With 19 teams participating, we were able to raise over $1600! Barbells for Boobs is an awesome organization, bringing awareness for the desperate need for mammograms and advocating for women who otherwise would not have access to these essential procedures.
We had a ton of first time competitors, which always makes for an awesome atmosphere. This year, we utilized three different "Girls of CrossFit" benchmark workouts: Karen, Cindy, and Diane. To keep our athletes on their toes (literally) we sneaked in just a few double-unders to each workout. Each team was able to decide which order in which they wanted to complete the three workouts, having three 7 minute time slots.
The highlight of the day, hands down, was experiencing guest speaker Christie Sproba, two time cancer survivor, recount her story. Listening to her personal experiences with breast cancer touched home for many of us who so often take our health for granted. To Christie and her family who so graciously shared her with us for a morning, thank you. We are so grateful for the time we were able to spend together.
All in all, we had an amazing time allowing our fitness and friendships to shine. Thank you to all who participated, donated, volunteered and supported our 3rd annual Barbells for Boobs fundraiser!
