Athletes 4 Autism 2022
Saturday at 8:00 AM EDT
We're excited to have teamed up with CrossFit Mecklenburg for another year for our 2022 fundraiser for Autism Speaks. We have a fun-filled Partner WOD followed by an after party! *Proceeds will go to Autism Speaks.* Partners can be male/male , female/female and male/female. We will have a competitive division (RX & Scaled) and the top 3 teams in each division will receive medals and a goodie bag provided by our sponsors. We will also have a Fun For All Division! This is for anyone who would like to participate non-competitive. You can scale however you like.
StoryAutism Speaks is the world’s leading autism science and advocacy organization. It is dedicated to funding research into the causes, prevention, treatments and a cure for autism; increasing awareness of autism spectrum disorders; and advocating for the needs of individuals with autism and their families. Autism Speaks was founded in February 2005 by Suzanne and Bob Wright, the grandparents of a child with autism. Mr. Wright is the former vice chairman of General Electric and chief executive officer of NBC and NBC Universal. Since its inception, Autism Speaks has committed more than $525 million to its mission, the majority in science and medical research. Each year Walk Now for Autism Speaks events are held in more than 100 cities across North America. On the global front, Autism Speaks has established partnerships in more than 60 countries on five continents to foster international research, services and awareness.
