BENCH PRESSING FOR BREAST CANCER
The first annual Benching for Breast Cancer event at CrossFit South Shore will take place on Saturday 10/31/2015. The event is a team competition comprised of 4 team members of the same sex. There will be a winning male and female team. The total pounds lifted by each team are mathematically compared to one's weight in order to calculate team totals. Your weight/Weight lifted then added to each team members for a total score. Ex. If 4 100 lb individuals bench pressed 100 lbs the ratio would be 1 per person and the total would be 4.0.
Prizes will be awarded for the best male team, the best female team and the best costume. Teams will be asked to dress in Halloween Costumes or in Pink. Come ready to have some fun with your friends while raising awareness for breast cancer!
Do you bench for a family member or loved one? We have created a Remembrance Wall to sign the names and honor the survivors, fighters, and those who lost the battle to breast cancer. We bench for them! Please bring pictures, articles, and quotes to post on the wall.
Registration is $10 per person. All proceeds support Breast Cancer Research and Services provided by the American Cancer Society. Please Donate on our Hub Site which will be provided soon. You can also bring cash or check the day!
