On October 20th CrossFit Bell held it annual Barbell for Boobs workout. Barbells for Boobs is a non profit organization that provides funding to pay for breast cancer detection services as a last resort for thousands of people who do not qualify for assistance elsewhere.  Their goal is to help anyone that needs it anytime, whether they are male, female, no matter their age or situation in life.

Lon Bazelais, Co-Founder and Managing Member of Grid Squared Systems as well as member of CrossFit Bell presented  coaches/owners Dominick Fortino & Anthony Lucic with a check for $1,000.00 towards their fund raising efforts for Barbell For Boobs. 

Lon said “Coaches Ant and Dom are always pushing us to challenge our fitness levels, I was very happy to issue a challenge to them.” The challenge was for CrossFit Bell to raise $7,500.00 and Grid Squared Systems would add a donation of $1,000.00.  The members of CrossFit Bell easily surpassed the $7,500.00 mark and with the donation from Grid Squared Systems they are almost double their fund raising goal.                                                                                                   B4B_(640x427)
