Barbells for Boobs is a 501c3 non-profit organization that funds early detection mammograms for men and women under 40. They do this because both men and women can have a genetic predisposition to breast cancer, but insurance coverage for mammograms is limited by age and gender requirements.
Throughout the month of October our community will be fundraising and on Saturday, October 29th we will celebrate and WOD.
We strongly encourage all members to get involved by reaching out to friends, family and employers to donate on our team’s webpage.
You can also create your own fundraising page for free on the Barbells for Boobs website and add that you are part of the Tangletown Crossfit team.
All funds go toward our team total. Last year, when I started this, I set the goal at $1,000. I was not sure if people would be into fundraising for breast cancer detection. I was blown away when our community raised $4,824.30! We raised the most money of all the other participating gyms in Minnesota and are the state champs for last year. Our goal this year is $5,000 and I know we can retain our state championship title because we have an incredibly special community at Tangletown Crossfit.
Help save boobs–and lives–by fundraising and coming to celebrate with us on Saturday, October 29 from 9-11 am. There will be a partner WOD, potluck and raffle with sweet prizes.
