One week prior to the event (Saturday, October 22nd @10am) CrossFit Spur will hold a pre-event class. This gives all participants (and those who still aren't sure about participating) an opportunity to try the workouts!

Why? 
There are many studies linking exercise to the reduced risk or breast cancer as well as improving the quality of life of those amid treatment. We hope this event sheds light on one of many ways in which people of any age and ability level can utilize physical activity to improve the quality of life outside the gym. 

- Women who get regular exercise (physical activity) may have a lower risk of breast cancer than women who are inactive (Susan G Komen)
- Although not all studies show this benefit, when the evidence is looked at as a whole, regular exercise appears to lower breast cancer risk by about 10 to 20 percent (Susan G Komen)
- Research strongly suggests that exercise is safe during and after cancer treatment and also can improve how you feel and how your body functions. (breastcancer.org)
