April is Autism Awareness Month! What better way to raise awareness then to come together as a box and raise awareness for all the children and families who are affected by Autism. AUTISM AFFECTS 1 IN 88 CHILDREN.
Also called "Luke" for the "Lift Up Autism" campaign, this WOD is inspired by CrossFit Icon, Josh Everett's son, Luke Everett, who was diagnosed with autism. A Lift Up Luke event was created to raise awareness of the Autism Tree Foundation to support early diagnosis and treatment of autism, as well as parent education. Lift Up Luke was not for Luke specifically, but for the “Lukes of the world” who struggle to deal with the day-to-day challenges of autism.
Josh Everett, TrainHeroic, and the CrossFit community rallied together in spectacular fashion to support the Autism community in a worldwide workout event called LiftUpLuke in October of 2013.
This WOD is actually a 5 min individual AMRAP, but we will be doing it as a 30 min AMRAP partner WOD.
