Saturday October 6, 2018 CrossFit Torque hosted it’s 8th annual Barbells for Boobs Fundraising Event!
This year was different than any other. In the years past (2011-2015), we gathered in pink and completed the workout called “Grace” and created shirts with the saying “Respect the Rack”. In 2016 and 2017, we rallied our efforts around supporting Coach Ali’s battle against cancer.
In 2018, we would be honored to have the founder of BFB, Zionna H, and her team Sarah, Patrick, Chris & Nate bless us at our event. Their goal was to not only support us in our fundraising efforts, but to share their story and educate our members about Right to Know (RTK) and Resources After Diagnosis (RAD). To date, Barbells for Boobs direct services have served 23,647 individuals, provided 45,225 procedures, and detected 351 cases of breast cancer.
TorqueNation had over 70 athletes show up to workout and support the event. We had 8 heats of athletes complete the workout.
We all signed our traditional tee shirt; as well as the BFB Tour Bus! We had a Beauty Bar set up to decorate ourselves in pink; and an Instagram frame to make those selfies even more fun!
Members baked amazingly tasty goodies and Fancy Pants Bakery donated cookies for our athletes to enjoy (proceeds going to BFB).
Jay from Ink’d was able to customize the official Open Road Tour BFB Tee shirts with a pink CrossFit Torque Logo – completely bada$$ thank you!
Our Raffle items were awesome! We had all 12 of them donated by members, who are so awesome for this!
Thank you to everyone who made this event successful and for supporting such a unique mission: from setting up prior to, the morning of, baking goodies, selling tickets, cleaning up, all of you are awesome!
With your help, BFB sold 42 tee shirts the day of ($1050 raised), collected $1286 cash donations, and $1476.20 donations online; for a rocking total of $3,812!!!
