"'WOD' for a Cause" Benefit CrossFit Competition to Support Breast Cancer Awareness This Saturday

On Saturday, October 31st, from 8:00 AM to 2:30 PM, the Irwindale Police Department will partner with the Irwindale CrossFit gym to present “‘WOD’ for a Cause,” a team-based benefit fundraising CrossFit competition.

“WOD” is a CrossFit term that means “workout of the day.” The “workout” for Saturday’s event is a series of CrossFit competitions designed to test the skill and endurance of the competing teams. The “cause” is our #PinkPatchProject and our fight against breast cancer.

Nearly 40 teams have already signed up to compete, including teams made up of Chief of Police Anthony Miranda and other Irwindale police officers. The event will also feature vendors, food trucks and other family-fun events!

The public is invited to come out to watch the competitions and to cheer on their favorite team.

Our #PinkPatchProject is an innovative public awareness campaign designed to bring attention to the fight against breast cancer and to support City of Hope in combating this disease. The pink patches are intended to stimulate conversation with the community and to encourage public awareness on the early detection and fight against the disease. All Irwindale police officers are wearing pink patches on their uniforms during “Breast Cancer Awareness Month”.

For more information on the #PinkPatchProject, visit www.pinkpatchproject.com

All funds raised at this CrossFit competition will go directly toward our #PinkPatchProject and our goal of raising $20,000.00 for City of Hope to aid in the research, treatment and education needed to help fight this disease.

Everyone is invited to come join us at this fun event and to support a worthy cause!
