IMG_3842October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month and CrossFit Talon wants to do something special in honor of this important time. Breast Cancer affects 232,340 women each year ~

FACT: There are about 39,620 deaths from breast cancer each year.

FACT: Breast cancer is the most common cancer among women in the United States, other than skin cancer.

FACT: It is the second leading cause of cancer death in women, after lung cancer.

FACT: The chance of a woman having invasive breast cancer during her life is about 1 in 8.

FACT: The chance of dying from breast cancer is about 1 in 36.

FACT: Breast cancer death rates have been going down which is probably the result of finding the cancer early and better treatment. Right now there are more than 2.8 million breast cancer survivors in the United States.

I challenge you to find someone within our Talon Community that does not know someone who has either had breast cancer or knows someone who has been affected by this disease. Tara and Dennis wanted to do some kind of fundraiser to raise money to help find a cure for Breast Cancer. Therefore, we give you ….. Burpees4Boobs!
