October is Breast Cancer Awareness month! The Aevitas community is taking charge this month to help support Barbells For Boobs. We have a couple of ways in which you can participate – so keep reading for details!
Why Barbells for Boobs?
One in every eight women will be impacted by breast cancer at some point in their life. We have several breast cancer survivors in our Aevitas community, and so it’s a cause that’s very near and dear to our hearts.
As for Barbells for Boobs collaboration? We believe that BB4B does a wonderful job in supporting women going through the difficulties of breast cancer. BB4B provides physical activity, social engagement, education, and other resources for women. We have even received an Aevitas athlete as a direct result of BB4B sponsorship!
How To Get Involved – The Aevitas SugarWOD Challenge
This October, we will be running a “performance tracking” challenge to raise money for Barbells for Boobs! All YOU have to do is log your scores for each workout you attend, and we’ll donate cash at the end of the month! Simple, right? Here are the details:
When: Oct 1st – 31st
What: This challenge is primarily a performance tracking challenge. Each time an athlete attends class and records their workout performance, a $0.25 donation will be made by Aevitas on that athlete’s behalf. That’s right, with every workout you score in the month of October, we are going to donate a quarter to BB4B in your honor.
At the end of the month, you will also be given the opportunity to match the donation that we’re providing on your behalf. So if over the month of October you were able to log 20 workout scores, we will be donating $5 on your behalf. You’ll have the chance to match that, for a total donation of $10.
While those numbers may seem small, the magic (like with anything CrossFit-related) is in the community effort! Think about the impact we can make together, just by doing what you already love to do!
How: We will be introducing you to a brand new WOD performance tracking app for this challenge – SugarWOD!
SugarWOD is highly regarded in the fitness space as a leading performance tracking software. For challenge participation, you will be required to download the (free) app and set up an account to log your results. We’re excited to trial this platform with the entire Aevitas community – especially if we can pair it with an awesome cause!
As for your existing Wodify account? Nothing will change there, yet. You’ll still be able to see the Aevitas WODs, reserve a spot in class, and continue to track performance in Wodify as you wish. However, only scores logged in SugarWOD will be tallied for donations as part of this challenge.
Why: we already introduced you to the cause we’re supporting – Barbells for Boobs! Show your support for the cause by showing up, putting in the work, and recording your performance!
