The Lou Workout – 1/27/24


The Lou Workout – 1/27/24

Our gym is participating in The Lou WoD on Saturday, January 27, 2024, to benefit the Live Like Lou Foundation on Saturday, January 27, 2024.

The Lou was created by Sunshine CrossFit owner Deb Austin and inspired by CrossFit Games Athlete, former gym owner, and ALS advocate Rainer Hartmann, who was diagnosed with Lou Gehrig’s disease in 2022

Lou Gehrig’s disease comes for the best of us and doesn’t differentiate between young and old, men or women. Sadly, it steals the use of your muscles. The synergy between CrossFit and Live Like Lou is clear… it’s a community of people working to make themselves and each other stronger.

We’ve been challenged to raise $1,444 or more! Help us win these awesome incentives, provided by our sponsor NOBULL:

 – First 244 participants to raise $144 get wristbands (+ a Live Like Lou t-shirt)

 – First 14 gyms to raise $1,444 get trainers for their top fundraiser

Please email us at [email protected] with questions! 

Each The Lou participant can create their own fundraising page to help raise funds for the fight against ALS. Check out our toolkit to get you started raising funds and awareness for ALS and Live Like Lou.

About the Live Like Lou Foundation

The Live Like Lou Foundation was established in 2017 as a national nonprofit with a vision to leave ALS better than we found it. Named in honor of MLB Hall of Famer Lou Gehrig, Live Like Lou supports ALS families, funds emerging researchers seeking meaningful treatments and cures for ALS, and helps generate awareness of Lou Gehrig’s disease. In the face of his ALS diagnosis, Lou Gehrig continued to live his life with courage, determination, and gratitude… this is what we mean when we say, live like Lou.

In Lou’s memory, volunteers have served more than 450 ALS families through Live Like Lou. Additionally, nearly $1 million in grants to emerging ALS researchers have been made since our inception, and $350,000 in scholarships have been awarded to children in ALS families to pursue higher education.
