October is Breast Cancer Awareness month and as many of you know, time for our annual Barbells for Boobs fundraising event. For the last 6 years we have partnered with B4B, a great organization, and we still support and respect them greatly. Zionna and the team even came to visit us in 2013 as part of the Pink Bra tour because of how our amazing the Knoxville CrossFit community was. Many of you veteran CrossFitters were there and we’ve made a lot of great friends through this event over the years, we hope to see all of you this year!
This year we wanted bring our work local and support folks dealing with all types of cancer, not just breast cancer. For 2017 we will be partnering with the Live 5 Foundation. We will still have fun, we will still do “Grace”, and we will still wear Pink, so bring your best costumes and let’s do this!
The L5 Foundation is local to Knoxville and keep all their resources in the greater Knoxville area. L5 Foundation is, first and foremost, focused on helping people at the most vulnerable times in their lives—and helping to relieve the emotional and financial burdens that can occur anytime to anyone. L5 was born out of questions like: Who’s taking care of our patients? Who is going grocery shopping or cleaning the house? Who is driving our patients to chemotherapy? Is there money to pay for childcare?
Basically L5 is there for those “in the thick of the fight” and they are doing great work, now we’ll help them. See you Oct. 27 in your best pink outfit!
