About the wod
Originally called “Lift Up Luke,” also just called “Luke” for the “Lift Up Autism” campaign, the 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 “competition for a cause” specifically sought to support turn a global spotlight on the measured and severe impact of Autism on families and individuals around the world.
