Barbells for Boobs

October 21, 2012

Today was a really beautiful day. Last year I talked about it, this year I was able to participate in it. An even called Barbells for Boobs. "Barbells for Boobs is an extremely popular charity event in the CrossFit community. The money raised is donated to "Mammograms In Action (MIA) which is a 501(c)3 non-profit breast cancer organization with the mission to provide funding for qualified low-income and uninsured women and men who need screening and/or diagnostic procedures in the prevention of breast cancer."

CrossFit EXP, in Leominster put out some information that they were going to be hosting a Barbells for Boobs event and of course all of us at CFW were more than happy to participate. K and M posted the information at the gym and lots of us expressed interest. The event is basically an open back to back running of "Grace" which is one of our benchmark girl WODs. Grace is 30 clean and jerks at either 95lbs or 135lbs. I was on the fence about participating because of the Beast the week before and what not, but I just couldnt resist. Amazing cause and amazing group of people so you really cant go wrong.

Overall EXP had a really great turnout and we had great participation from CrossFit Wachusett as well!!
