Over the past 5 years CrossFit Fishers has raised nearly $20,000 for Barbells for Boobs through our annual Helen meets Grace fundraising event. This year we are calling upon our local fitness community at large to help us make this our 5th year the best fundraising year to date. Our team goal is to raise $10,000 which would equate to 125 women or men being afforded the opportunity to receive the funding for early detection.
WHY BARBELLS FOR BOOBS
This mission and fundraiser hits home for our coaches and our community here at CrossFit Fishers. Coach Troy lost his mother in 2011 to a 3 year battle with Stage 4 breast cancer. Coach Pam’s mother is a 30 year breast cancer survivor.
One of our members Nancy who was was diagnosed with Stage 2 breast cancer in June of 2015 at the age of 35. She has completed all of her cancer treatments and is currently in remission. For more information on her story check out this great video.
