3rd Annual Barbells for Boobs!!!
We are happy to announce that we will be hosting the 3rd annual Barbells for Boobs on October 27. All of the proceeds go to Mammograms in Action which is a non profit that helps low income women get mammograms. Least year we raised almost $4000 and have set our goal this year to be at least $5000. So how can you help? First click here https://support.barbellsforboobs.org/group-fundraising/surge to register to participate and donate. Then make your goal to get between 2-5 other people (that are not Surge members) to come and participate in “Amazing Grace” or get them to come cheer you on and donate. We decided to change it up this year and do “Helen meets Grace” which is done in teams of two!
“HELEN MEETS GRACE is a fun and exciting event that combines TWO of CrossFit’s favorite Girl WODs in ONE workout as a fundraising benefit for Barbells for Boobs ® and the fight against breast cancer.
This is a TWO-PERSON team workout with one person working at a time, except for the 400m runs, which must be performed together.
HELEN consists of THREE rounds of: 400 meter run (both partners run together), 21 kettlebell swings (Rx 53/35#) and 12 pull-ups. Partners can tag-team in and out of the kettlebell swings and/or pull-ups as needed.
Once all three rounds of HELEN are complete, the team immediately moves on to perform GRACE which consists of: 30 clean and jerks (Rx 135/95#) as fast as possible, partitioned anyhow between the two team members.
Score is total time for the team to complete both workouts!”
Not all of the details are set yet, but most likely we will start heats at 9 and go until everyone has gone. We will be doing a raffle and party after that. It will be at the gym this year so if it snows we will be fine! That being said we are also looking for items to be donated for the raffle. All of the proceeds will go to Barbells for Boobs! Please let me know if you have something to donate to the raffle or know someone who has a product they want to donate! It is all tax deductible as well!
Here is a video from last year! Thanks to Nikki for putting it together for us!
Scott has been awesome enough to design us some Surge only Barbells for Boobs shirts that we will be selling for $28 with all the profits also going to B4B. See designs below. We will be doing pre-orders for the shirts, also available in tanks.
