A local business hosted a unique event to help raise money for breast cancer diagnosis.
Crossfit Thunder in Huntington held a special event Friday night. Last year, they raised $16,000 and earned big bragging rights from the Pink Bra Tour, which stopped by the event.
People came out and could do a workout in honor or memory of a friend or loved one fighting breast cancer.
"I don't want anybody else to have a child born that will never have a grandparent,” Tyler Haslam, whose mother died of breast cancer, said. “I want to do the fundraising to be able to help people out, and I want them to know that there's no reason they can't get preventative care and, hopefully, treat it in the early stages so that it doesn't progress beyond a stage where it's treatable."
