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.

Amesbury Massachusetts is a suburban community with an unusual industrial and manufacturing history. Among the most interesting of Amesbury's products were the carriages which did achieve some renown in the area.
Into the 20th century this same company made the transition by converting its production to automobile bodies. Auto body making was a major industry in the town up until the Great Depression of 1929.
Amesbury is located at the crossroads of Interstate 495 and 95 and gives the town a competitive edge for both residential and commercial development.
Amesbury is built up with rich federal period residences which the community carefully preserves as its link to its past.
