BARBELLS FOR BOOBS

 

Join us today as we all put our efforts in fundraising towards the Barbells for Boobs organization.

 

FUNDRAISE.DETECT.SAVE

 

Why get involved?

 

Change the statistics! Did you know that 1 out of 8 women in the US will develop breast cancer and that 7% of these women will be under the age of 40?

 

Barbells for boobs is a non-profit organization dedicated to the early detection of breast cancer, with an emphasis on women and men under the age of 40.

 

Inspired by athletes everywhere, local communities come together, fundraise, and help us detect potentially life threatening breast cancer occurrences.

 

They aim to provide a way for breast cancer to be detected in its earliest stage in order to prevent a growing and infinitely more serious problem.

 

Their grant program provides funding to breast centers nationally as a resource for thousands of men and women who do not qualify for government funding or other charitable resources in the detection of breast cancer.

 

Barbells for Boobs has been able to successfully provide detection services in many states across the U.S. Our impact has not only raised awareness of the incidence of breast cancer under the age of 40, it has also provided resources to those that typically would not have access to the necessary screening and diagnostic procedures to detect breast cancer.

Testimonials

*If you asked me a year ago why I go to the gym I would’ve told you to workout. But then in December of 2014 I stepped into Crossfit Lighthouse. The first day I walked in I was a cocky twenty-year-old kid who thought he was in great shape… That day was a huge wake up call. A 60-year-old man who I now know as “Frank the Tank” kicked my ass in the workout. At first I didn’t know what to think. Was I unfit, out of shape, or was I just plain pathetic? I expected the coaches and members to look down on me. However the exact opposite happened. Everyone congratulated me on finishing the workout and made me feel welcomed.



As the weeks went by I learned a lot about the facility. The equipment was of the highest degree and the coaches were inspiring. I got to witness what the coaches were physically capable of and I thought I would never be at their level. Even though I doubted myself the coaches always pushed me to do my best. Every single coach wanted me to get to the next level. I was inspired to be like them.



After spending an entire year with Crossfit Lighthouse’s state of the art facility and inspiring coaches, I have developed passion for the sport. I walk in everyday looking to push my limits. Crossfit Lighthouse has changed my life for the better and I cannot thank the owners, Jack and Dan, enough for creating such an amazing community. So now, one year later, if you asked me why I go to the gym, I would tell you its to spend time with my knew friends and family.*
