BRIGHTWATERS - A unique fundraising event to support breast cancer awareness was held outside CrossFit Rapture in Brightwaters today.

Nearly 100 participated in "Barbells for Boobs," which aimed to raise money to provide breast cancer detection services for thousands of people who may not qualify for assistance on their own.

The CrossFit members, some of whom are breast cancer survivors, have already raised $14,000 for mammograms.

CrossFit Rapture's goal is to raise more than $20,000. It will continue to raise funds through December.
