If you are looking for a fun event that combines a great workout and supports breast cancer, look no further than Barbells for Boobs. This annual event, organized by Superior CrossFit, has raised over $10,000 for the Northern Cancer Fund.
“Barbells for Boobs is a worldwide event put on by CrossFit gyms during the month of October, which is breast cancer awareness month. The event is “Grace”, 30 Clean and Jerks for FUN! The workout can be modified and is suitable for all abilities and levels of fitness,” says Ron Rost, one of the organizers of the event. “All proceeds from the event will be donated to the Northern Cancer Fund, as it’s important to us that funds raised will stay right here in Northwestern Ontario”.
