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.

Moving Vid and the first I Have ever commented on. the lady who spoke was so passionate that I was impressed. WOD "Grace" is one of my frequent flyers in barbell and Kettlebell formats. since I am on a 100 rep program this month, (don't ask) my WODs are 100 reps,therefore "Grace" this month will be a 100 reps with Kettlebells first (32kgx2 from the floor) and rubber plated barbells.It will not be a fun thing and nor is cancer.
