Barbells for Boobs

On Friday 21 OCT, throughout the day, Iron Major CrossFit is hosting Barbells For Boobs to help raise money for Mammograms In Action. Here is some background information on B4B:

Amazing “Grace” began as a small, local fundraising event to help fund mammograms for the young women of Southern California who couldn’t afford one themselves. Thanks to a ton of support (and sweat!) from our local CrossFit community, we were able to raise $4000 and fund our very first mammogram.
Before we knew it, we were receiving countless emails and phone calls from CrossFit affiliates from around the world asking how they could participate and help our cause. We are proud to say, that just one year after the inaugural event, we were in 5 countries, had over 400 CrossFit Affiliates get involved, over 5,000 participants and raised over $300,000 in the 2010 Amazing “Grace” fundraiser. Make history and REGISTER TODAY for Amazing “Grace” 2011!

The WOD for the Barbells For Boobs "Amazing Grace" is "Grace":

In this workout, you perform 30 Clean and Jerks for time. The weight used for men is 135 pounds and 95 pounds for women. During the Amazing “Grace” fundraiser all participants may modify the weight used in order to accommodate their physical abilities. Click here for the rules.
This isn't like FGB- where we seek sponsors...this is the athletes donating for the privilege to do the WOD.  To Register go to www.barbellsforboobs.com. Search for Iron Major and register before the WOD.  If you don't want to donate the $35 for the t-shirt, at least donate something...and then come do the WOD on Friday.
