Throughout the month of October the Functional Fitness Journal is sponsoring “Amazing Grace,” which is a fundraiser to help women who either are of low-income, or are uninsured. All participants of this event will perform “Grace,” which is one of the named Functional Fitness works where you perform 30 Clean and Jerks for time. 100% of the proceeds from this fundraiser will go to Mammograms in Action. Mammograms in Action is a non-profit organization located in Lake Forest, CA. Their mission is to provide funding for qualified women who need screening and/or diagnostic procedures in the prevention of breast cancer.
We heard about this great event and we felt we had to get involve. Each participating Functional Fitness Affiliate will be hosting the event of a given day during the month of October. If you have any further questions please check out www.barbellsforboobs.org.
