WHAT IS LIFT UP AUTISM?
Back in October 2013 Josh Everett, TrainHeroic, and more than 350 boxes in the fitness community rallied together in spectacular fashion to support the Autism community in a worldwide workout event called Lift Up Luke.
This competition for a cause sought to support early diagnosis and treatment of Autism, raise funds for the Autism Tree Project Foundation in San Diego, and most importantly, turn a global spotlight on the measured and severe impact of Autism on families and individuals around the world.
In 2016, the community crushed 2013's results with more than:
39 countries represented
650 boxes hosting the event
7,500 athletes performing the workout
$75,000 donated to our foundations
and 17.5 million social media impressions raising awareness and driving action
This year, we're looking to raise the bar and take it to a whole other level.
Our 2017 goal: Connect 1,000 gyms and 10,000 athletes around the globe to mobilize around this cause.
And you can help.
5 MIN AMRAP
The "Luke" workout is challenging but accessible. We have scaling options to accommodate athletes of all abilities and experience levels. If you're new to CrossFit or have never done these movements, there are many other ways to participate and get involved. Click here to watch CrossFit Seminar Staff get after it.
