WHAT IS LIFT UP AUTISM?
Three years ago, on October 19, 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” specifically 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.
This year, we’re looking to raise the bar and take it to a whole other level.
FAST/CrossFit LTP will be hosting LiftUpAutism September 10th, 2016 at 8:00am. Athletes can follow the link below to sign-up and choose their Participation Options for the Event.
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.
Our 2016 goal: Connect 1,000 gyms and 10,000 athletes around the globe to mobilize around this cause.
