On September 19, CrossFit Thermal will be joining over 400 other gyms participating in Lift Up Autism.

What is Lift Up Autism?

Two years ago, on October 19, 2013 Josh Everett, TrainHeroic, and the more than 350 boxes in the CrossFit 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 upping the ante and doubling down our efforts to take the impact of the event to another level.

Join us at the 9 & 10am classes as we perform a special WOD, “Luke

5 MIN AMRAP
4 Power Cleans: 155 lbs.  men/105 lbs. women
24 Double Unders
10 Pull-Ups

The  “Luke” workout is challenging but accessible.  We have scaling options to accommodate athletes of all abilities and experience levels.

Our goal is to have all of our members participate in this WOD, and you can sign up here!  There are 4 options you can choose from to sign up.  Donations are completely voluntary, but if you sign up as a Heroic Helper, you do get a T-shirt!  We hope to see you all there!
