set up and judge the events throughout the weekend. “The community is what
sets apart our gym from the others,” said Jason Leydon, Owner and Head Coach

be successful. Without the community there is no true CrossFit Milford.”
CrossFit Millford community members will also be at the event raising money for
Barbells for Boobs, a non-profit organization dedicated to the early detection of
breast cancer, with an emphasis on women and men under the age of 40. “I'm a
survivor and a Crossfitter,” said Megan Adams, member at CrossFit Milford.
“Barbells for Boobs combines the two parts of my life and allows me to share my
story while also helping others. The sense of community that has formed amazes
me. We may never meet those we are helping but everyone deserves the right to
know if they have breast cancer.” A fundraiser for Barbells for Boobs will be
held at CrossFit Milford on November 1. The community has raised over
$17,000 so far and the team is currently in 6th place out of over 850 fundraising
teams in the world for the organization.
Registration is now closed for competitors, however sponsorship opportunities
are still available. Admission for spectators is free.
