Stand Up to Cancer: 2015 Crush Cancer Event


I love sharing information about working out and giving back. This weekend, in gyms across the country you can participate in: The 5th Annual 2015 Crush Cancer event to benefit Stand Up to Cancer! 


The 5th Annual 2015 Crush Cancer event to benefit Stand Up To Cancer’s collaborative cancer research. This year, Crush Cancer will host one main event that will be held in Culver City, California, on Saturday, October 10. In addition, gyms from across the country and around the world will be hosting their own events—all with the goal of raising as much money as possible for Stand Up To Cancer.

THE GOAL: Raise awareness and fund accelerated cancer research while providing a motivating and challenging workout experience.

While this is not a CrossFit sanctioned event, it resembles a CrossFit WOD type of workout.

The Workout 

Stand Up to Cancer3 Rounds/1 Minute Each (Levels: Advanced, intermediate, Novice)

  • Power Cleans (95/65)
  • Kettlebell Swings
  • Burpees
  • Double Unders
  • Shoulder to Overhead (95/65)

Tally your reps each round and your score is the cumulative number of reps at the end of 3 rounds.

In the DC area, DC CrossFit is hosting an event, but if you can’t find a local gym, hit up your local fitness spot and get it done and donate some money for this important cause

Stand Up To Cancer: September 7 2012


2012 Stand Up To Cancer Benefit

I have written about Andy Whitfield, an amazing actor who lost his battle with cancer. The cast of Spartacus has been very active in keeping his memory alive but more importantly helping raise awareness and funds for cancer research.

Lucy Lawless, from Spartacus, filmed this video for the Stand Up 2 Cancer Benefit — and she also mentions Andy Whitfield’s Documentary Be Here Now. 

Remember, Stand Up to Cancer event is on Sept  7 at 8p.

Stand up to Cancer is a great organization, so please consider helping support their cause. Not because there are a bunch of celebs behind it, but because they do good work!

Stand Up to Cancer was founded in 2007 by a group of women, including Katie Couric, who had all been affected by cancer. Their hope was to enlist the media and entertainment industries in the fight against the disease.
