WHAT IS LIFT UP AUTISM? Three years ago, on October 19, 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" specifically 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. Last year, we crushed 2013's results with more than: 650 Boxes hosting the event 39 Countries represented 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 2016 goal: Connect 1,000 gyms and 10,000 athletes around the globe to mobilize around this cause. You can help us. 2016 LIFT UP AUTISM SWAG: YOUR NEW FAVORITE SHIRT Making you look good and dreams come true. $10 of every shirt goes directly to our favorite Autism foundations.

The Youth Advocacy Division (YAD) of CPCS is sponsoring a skills training for defense attorneys in Bristol County. Do you often find yourself wondering if you should object to something at trial? Are you sometimes at a loss when asked by the judge “counsel, what are your grounds for objecting?” Do you wish you could organize your trial preparation in order to anticipate objections? Do you agonize over if you have properly protected the record for appeal? If so, come to the skills training on Making and Responding to Objections sponsored by YAD Training. The afternoon will be a combination of discussion and on-your-feet exercises where we will hone our skills and learn from each other. Please RSVP to: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/making-and-responding-to-objections-bristol-tickets-26924194992 It is important to RSVP so we can accommodate everyone who wants to attend.
