The Amazing “Grace” fundraising event began as a small, local event to help fund mammograms for the young women of Southern California who couldn’t afford one themselves. Thanks to a ton of support (and sweat!) from local CrossFit communities around the area, $4000 was raised and helped to fund the very first mammogram.
In just one year after the inaugural event, over 150 CrossFit Affiliates from all over the country will be participating in the 2010 Amazing “Grace” fundraiser now known as “Barbells For Boobs“. This nationwide event will go to help other young women in similar situations from around the nation and hopefully globally by 2011!
Mammograms In Action is a non-profit organization located in Lake Forest, CA. Whose mission is to provide funding for qualified women who need screening and/or diagnostic procedures in the prevention of breast cancer. By supporting MIA you help low-income and uninsured women. 100% of the proceeds of Amazing “Grace” will be donated to Mammograms In Action.
On Saturday October 30th, the CrossFit Rockland team will be headed over to CrossFit ACT to participate in their Barbells For Boobs fundraising event! Please join us in supporting this effort as we try to help SAVE A PAIR!!!
