October is upon us and it is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. We have a couple of fun events planned to raise money to support the Barbells for Boobs Foundation. They get ahead of the game by providing mammograms for women who are not eligible/cannot afford them Everyone should be able to get a mammogram – but a lot of time insurance dictates whether or not you deserve one.
Besides the Mammograms in Action Program, Barbells for Boobs also offers the RAD program. It stands for Resources After Diagnosis. It focuses is on nutrition and exercise as an approach to prepare those newly diagnosed. They support through scholarships to gyms where they will work with trainers on nutrition and fitness programs to best get through their treatment, as well as support communities online and in person.
More information to come, but start scrounging around your carseats and loveseats for our fundraising jars!
