AMRAP 4 AUTISM 2020

CrossFit Pineville and RISE Charlotte are proud to partner with AMRAP 4 Autism!!  We are excited to be a satellite host for their fundraising workout at our gym on Saturday August 1st, 2020 at 8am, 9am, and 10am.  Pick your preferred heat time and get signed up here!

Like most things this year, the coronavirus has sadly altered the plans for AMRAP 4 Autism’s flagship event.  It was originally to be held May 2nd at a big Sportsplex with fun for the whole family.  But, the team has altered course and found a way to continue their efforts to raise money for the Autism Strong Foundation supporting our local community affected by autism.

Pandemics, quaratines, none of that changes the implications of autism on those with the disorder or their families…

1 in 54 children are diagnosed with Autism in the US. The average cost for a family with autism spectrum disorder is $60,000.  AMRAP 4 Autism is a community fitness charity event with a simple goal of awareness, support and most importantly love for those children impacted with Autism.  Founded in 2013 in Charlotte, NC and now growing to multiple states throughout the country, A4A is a excited to have you join us on this journey of helping those in need.

AMRAP 4 Autism builds acceptance and awareness in our community; provides opportunities for more services and connections for kids with autism; and provides hope.

Couldn’t we all use a little more of that these days…HOPE!?  Join us Saturday, August 1st as we raise money for the Autism Strong Foundations and participate in this year’s AMRAP 4 Autism WOD!!
