BARBELLS FOR BOOBS ® IS A 501(C)3 NON-PROFIT BREAST CANCER ORGANIZATION WHOSE MISSION IS 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.
OUR VISION: TO RAISE AWARENESS OF THE INCIDENCE OF BREAST CANCER UNDER THE AGE OF 40, AND PROVIDE RESOURCES TO THOSE THAT TYPICALLY WOULD NOT HAVE ACCESS TO SCREENING AND DIAGNOSTIC PROCEDURES FOR PREVENTATIVE PURPOSES.
OUR COMMITMENT: TO BE A PROACTIVE VOICE IN EARLY DETECTION, PROMOTE SELFCHECKS AND REGULAR CHECK-UPS WITH HEALTH CARE PROFESSIONALS AND PROVIDE STRAIGHTFORWARD ACCESS TO SERVICES FOR ANY MAN OR WOMEN, REGARDLESS OF AGE.
OUR GOAL: TO PROVIDE FUNDING TO BREAST CENTERS GLOBALLY THROUGH OUR MAMMOGRAMS IN ACTION ® GRANT PROGRAM AS A “LAST RESORT” RESOURCE FOR THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE WHO DO NOT QUALIFY FOR GOVERNMENT FUNDING OR OTHER CHARITABLE RESOURCES. FUNDING FOR SCREENINGS AND DIAGNOSTIC PROCEDURES IS NOT ONLY A NECESSITY, BUT REALLY DOES SAVE LIVES.
OUR MISSION IS POSSIBLE, OUR MESSAGE IS SIMPLE: SAVE A PAIR. SAVE A LIFE.
AMAZING GRACE is an annual fundraiser that combines the efforts of Barbells for Boobs, a non-profit breast cancer organization located in Southern California, working in conjunction with CrossFit affiliates worldwide to raise money and awareness for the fight against breast cancer. 100% of the net proceeds from these events will support the Mammograms In Action ® Grant Program.
Last year, the AMAZING GRACE signature fundraiser included participation from 415 CrossFit Affiliates and 12,000 participants across 7 countries and successfully raised over $600,000.
In this workout, participants perform 30 Clean and Jerks for time. The weight used for men is 135 pounds and 95 pounds for women. During the fundraiser, all participants may modify the weight used in order to accommodate their physical abilities.
As a special gift to any individuals raising $80 or more – representing the estimated cost to provide ONE MAMMOGRAM – we will send you a signature Barbells for Boobs t-shirt. This is our way of thanking you for your commitment to helping us fulfill our mission: SAVE A PAIR. SAVE A LIFE.
