Meet Dawn, a small woman with the most adorable smile and spirit. During her recent battle with breast cancer, the cross fitters who know and love her went the extra mile. They grunted, jumped, pulled, sweated and worked every fiber in their muscles to support her in her journey.
They sponsored a fundraiser called Barbells for Boobs; a cross-fit competition held in Kansas City to benefit breast cancer. These athletes “get ugly” to raise awareness.
These folks were just so easy to love. It wasn’t a competition. It was a family of fellowship, inviting and warm. They were especially welcoming to me, a washed-up collegiate softball player who hasn’t worked out in four years. Or longer.
