Long Island City, New York October 23, 2010 -
The 'Amazing Grace' Workout and Fundraiser was held by Crossfit member clubs throughout the United States. Long Island City's members gathered at Anabel Basin.
The CrossFit workout is “Grace”. In this workout, members perform 30 Clean and Jerks for time. The weight used for men is 135 pounds, 95 pounds for women. During the Amazing “Grace” fundraiser all participants could modify the weight used in order to accommodate their physical abilities. and
Amazing “Grace” began as a small, local fundraising event to help fund mammograms for the young women who couldn’t afford one themselves. Thanks to a ton of support (and sweat!) from the CrossFit community, the organization was able to raise $4000 and fund their very first mammogram. Before they knew it, CrossFit affiliates from around the world started asking how they could participate and help the cause. One year after the inaugural event, over 150 CrossFit Affiliates will be participating in the 2010 Amazing “Grace” fundraiser!
CrossFit Long Island City hosted the event a few short blocks away from their base location, at the Anabel Basin Bar & Grill..
