WHAT a GREAT night we had – over 100 athletes and many, many more family and friends – we know that we have raised almost $2,000 for Barbells for Boobs and for our in house fundraiser for Claire we are still waiting for some donations to come in and once we have a amount we will be sure to let you know.

Some of the quotes that I heard from that evening are:

“What an amazing night. Best one yet by far! We have created something at Crossfit Factory Square that is simply hard to explain. Truthfully I don’t even try. If someone wants to know more about it they absolutely have to experience it themselves. And it’s not just on an event night you can experience that. It’s every day of the week. I couldn’t be more happy to be a part of it and to have you both in my life. It’s way more than just a place to workout!!!”

“Crossfit Factory Square is more than a workout, super thankful to have met some of these amazing people the past 3 years! 

“don’t even know how to caption this. ‪#‎epicbutterfly‬ – Jonathan Fortier

“Getting my Grace Meets Helen on last night for the Barbells for Boobs breast cancer awareness fundraiser – Love Crossfit Factory Square”

“Amazing night for a great cause @crossfit_factory_square! Thanks to everyone who was a part of the @barbellsforboobs event!”
