BARBELLS FOR BOOBS 2018
When we opened our doors in 2014, we had no idea who would be lead to walk through our doors.
Four years later, we have had the privilege to work with 7 breast cancers fighters and survivors.
Back then, we had no idea how big of an impact this disease would have on our entire community. From having members join after fighting their biggest battle of their lives, to others being diagnosed and walking through treatment with us, we are grateful to have been able to share in their journey.
Each year we partner with Barbells for Boobs and set the bar high for our community to rally together and participate in something bigger than themselves.
Barbells for Boobs is an incredible organization, making an impact in early detection of breast cancer. They provide mammograms to the 7% of men and women who fall outside of insurance coverages because of their age, sex, and demographic.
This year we set a goal of $10,000 and in just the first two weeks of October we not only met it, but exceeded it! This community has already broughT in over $14,000 for the organization and its not to late to give!
A FEW HIGHLIGHTS FROM OUR LIVE EVENT:
- Honoring 5 of our communities survivors & fighters
- Julie Jensen courageously sharing her story about her fight with breast cancer
- Fireside Kids participating in their WOD & Bake sale – brining in over $800!
- Fireside Athletes taking on a Team WOD (When Grace meets Helen)
- Fireside Barbell crushing the donations in their sponsored liftoff – throwing up big weights & raising money per KG lifted.
- Coach Jeffs Burpees for Boobs Campaign.
We especially want to give a big shout out to Coach Jeff : He pledged 1 burpee for ever dollar donated to his efforts. In just short of two weeks he had accumulated close to $2,000 / 2000 burpees which he completed in ONE DAY! Starting at 1PM and pushing 8PM that night, as Jeff was rounding out 1700 burpees in shear misery, our community rallied to “buy back” the remaining burpee – $1 for ever burpee remaining. Coach Jeff individually raised of $2,500 for Barbells for Boobs!
We want to emphasize… THANK YOU to all who gave! THANK YOU to all who joined our team and fundraised! THANK YOU for all who joined us for our live event!
More importantly, THANK YOU to our Fireside members who have overcome more than most of us can even begin to understand… you are our true heroes!
IT’S NOT TOO LATE TO GIVE! JOIN US IN MAKING A BIGGER IMPACT!
