Our aim is to help anyone that needs it, anywhere, whether they are male or female, no matter what their age or situation in life.
HOW IT ALL BEGAN
“I did not know how large this problem was until my best friend was a part of this statistic.”
– Zionna Munoz, Founder & CEO
Zionna Munoz founded Barbells for Boobs in 2009 after her best friend was diagnosed with breast cancer at the age of 26. Because of her young age, the doctors advised her to simply come back when she was 40. Due to her persistence at being screened it was discovered that she had Stage 0 (DCIS) breast cancer. It was in part her friend’s strong survivor spirit along with the challenges that she faced in accessing breast health care services that inspired Zionna to create Barbells for Boobs and the Mammograms In Action Grant Program as a proactive voice and supportive resource in the fight against breast cancer
In 2009, the first Barbells for Boobs event was held in a parking lot in Corona Del Mar with 60 athletes from 3 local CrossFit affiliates. Since then, Barbells for Boobs has grown exponentially and now involves more than 45,000 participants across 1300 affiliates in 23 countries!
