barbells for boobs

What: “Barbells for Boobs” This is an even put on by CrossFit gyms each year to help raise not only money but more importantly awareness towards breast cancer.

Where: CrossFit Lakewood Ranch
5261 Paylor Lane
Lakewood Ranch, FL

When: Saturday October 24, 2015 from 9am-12pm

Why am I fundraising for Barbells for Boobs? So that together we can take action to raise funds and help detect potentially life-threatening breast cancer occurrences. Barbells for Boobs is dedicated to the early detection of breast cancer, with an emphasis on women and men under the age of 40.

Here’s how you can help: Make a donation and/or show up on Saturday 10/24 from 9-12 to throw down on one awesome workout. (For every $80 raised, ONE more person will know if they are living with breast cancer)  

Below are links to our gym’s donation page, the Barbells for Boobs main page, and our Facebook event page:
