The 7 Sacred Rules at AllStar

At CrossFit AllStar we commit to live the following:

  1. I promise to do my best. My best will vary from day to day, minute to minute. But in that minute I will do my absolute best.
  2. If I can run, I run. If I have to walk, I walk. When I am forced to crawl, I crawl. Then I rest and live to fight another day.
  3. I may struggle, curse and cry but I will never quit.
  4. I will never criticize or beat myself up for what I can't do today. I will just try again tomorrow.
  5. I promise to believe in myself, beginning each workout with the thought that "I can do this!"
  6. I show up to my workouts because I am committed to my health. My commitment to health is an act of self-love.
  7. I acknowledge that my diet is the most important part of my program. The cleaner it is, the better I do.

DESCRIPTION

WHAT IS LIFT UP AUTISM?

Back in October 2013 Josh Everett, TrainHeroic, and more than 350 boxes in the fitness 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 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.

In 2016, the community crushed 2013's results with more than:

  • 39 countries represented

  • 650 boxes hosting the event

  • 7,500 athletes performing the workout

  • $75,000 donated to our foundations

  • and 17.5 million social media impressions raising awareness and driving action

This year, we're looking to raise the bar and take it to a whole other level.

Our 2017 goal: Connect 1,000 gyms and 10,000 athletes around the globe to mobilize around this cause.

And you can help.

I'd like to get our CrossFit AllStar group together to participate in the Bieni Kohler-Johnson '83 5K Fun Run and Dog Walk on Sunday, September 24, run starts at 9am

Please Click On This LINK FOR MORE INFO AND TO REGISTER! 

About This Activity

This fun community event honors Bieni Kohler-Johnson '83, an HPA alumna who passed away in 2009 after a valiant battle against breast cancer. Proceeds benefit the Bieni Kohler-Johnson '83 Memorial Fund at HPA, as well as a local breast cancer support organization chosen by the HPA student service program. 

The Bieni Kohler-Johnson '83 Memorial Fund is intended to help a deserving female HPA student follow her dreams. It is awarded to someone not only gifted in athletics, academics, or the arts, but who understands her responsibility to work hard to develop and share those gifts. In the spirit of namesake, the scholarship is awarded to a young woman who is an inspiration to others, who demonstrates a shining sincerity of commitment and unhesitant willingness to go the "extra mile" for friends, family, or a worthy cause. This year four outstanding young women received a scholarship from this Fund.

Thank you for supporting The Bieni Kohler-Johnson '83 Memorial Fund, and continuing her legacy by honoring deserving female students at HPA with this scholarship.
