What is AMRAP for Autism?
AMRAP is a CrossFit term for "as many rounds as possible." Registered athletes/fundraisers will participate in a specially designed (timed) work out, where they will attempt to complete as many rounds of the workout as possible in the allotted time. And, in doing so, each athlete will also be helping to raise funds for Special Citizens and all they do in supporting the autistic and developmentally disabled communities.
All proceeds from AMRAP for Autism will directly support Special Citizens' critical work of providing daily high-quality day, community and residential services to hundreds affected by Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). Since 1976 Special Citizens has advocated tirelessly and compassionately for lives of inclusion, independence and acceptance among the hundreds of individuals who participate in our wide array of services. Every dollar you raise helps us build bigger, better, more enduring programs and initiatives for the ASD population of the Bronx, Westchester and New York City.
How Does it Work?
The workout (which will be developed and shared with participants prior to the day of the event) will consist of a series of exercises that participants will then try to get through as many repititions as possible in an allotted amount of time. All participants will also be entered into a raffle to win prizes.
The registration fee per person is $25, which covers (1) AMRAP for Autism tee (or tank), (1) Special Citizens water bottle and also acts as a kickoff donation to Special Citizens. Each participant is asked to create a fundraising page with a suggested goal of at least $750, and then will raise as much money as they can leading up to the day of the competition on Saturday, September 29th.
Never done CrossFit? No problem!
Prior experience is NOT needed to participate in the workout – anyone can do it! However, if working out isn't your thing, your secret is safe with us! You can still show your support by donating to the event or sponsoring one of the participating athletes. And if you’re able to, come to the gym and cheer us on from the sidelines.
