When breast cancer struck her best friend at only age 26, Zionna Munoz realized many women cannot afford to get regular mammograms. She saw an opportunity to help these women through the supportive CrossFit community.
Munoz began Barbells for Boobs to organize the Amazing Grace fundraiser. Proceeds are donated to Mammograms in Action, a non-profit breast-cancer organization of which Munoz is founder and president. What started as an idea has grown into a nationwide movement.
During the month of October, CrossFit gyms around the country can join the movement to host Amazing Grace at their box. Find out more about this life-saving fundraiser and how you and your box can get involved.
