Barbells for Boobs
Barbells for Boobs is a non-profit organization that is committed to improving the standard of breast healthcare and the quality of life of individuals with breast cancer through fitness. And Bodybuilding.com is teaming up with Barbells for Boobs during the month of October to further the charitable efforts and the individuals that benefit from their work.
Barbells for Boobs was born 9 years ago when CEO, Zionna Hanson’s best friend Cecy Morales discovered a lump on her breast at just 26 years old. She was denied a breast screening by medical professionals, and after fighting and advocating for herself, she discovered she was living with breast cancer.
Since then, Barbells for Boobs has fundraised approximately $14M. Through community driven fundraising, the team has created two main programs, Right to Know (RTK) and Resources After Diagnosis (RAD). The RTK program provides access to quality breast healthcare through education, support and navigation to viable local resources and providers. The RAD program supports individuals diagnosed with breast cancer by using a global network of survivor/athletes; community driven support groups; events; and financial assistance to local CrossFit affiliates nationwide.
