Barbells for Boobs philosophy.
WE BELIEVE THAT EVERYONE HAS A RIGHT TO KNOW™IF THEY’RE LIVING WITH BREAST CANCER, and this year is extra special because our awareness campaign will raise funds for a local small business owner :
CAROLYN STRATTON, owner of Doggie Style Pet Grooming in Edwards, Colorado.
Carolyn was recently diagnosed with breast cancer. Although there was a history in her family, she is only 43 years old, and now finding herself managing not only her busy small business in Edwards, but the surgeries and treatments that come with this diagnosis. Carolyn moved to Vail in 1998, where she met her husband and eventually started her dog grooming business in 2007. We are calling on our generous Vail Valley community to rally behind Carolyn and help support her through this tough time!
SO, WHY BARBELLS?
The Barbell represents a commitment to health and wellness. It’s a lifestyle. It’s loud. It’s disruptive. It’s a movement.
The crossed Barbells represent health and wellness, which go hand-in-hand. Health encompasses nutrition and exercise, the only proven way to reduce the risk of cancer. Wellness means advocating for yourself by taking action because no one is immune to chronic disease.
The Barbell also represents a weight being lifted. It represents peace-of-mind.
We believe that we can affect long-term social change. We’re unorthodox (the word Boobs is in our name) and challenging the status quo. We’re about action, we’re about being proactive, and we’re about raising the bar.
Together with one unified voice, we can make a difference.
