First Response Fights Autism

First Annual Charity Event

CrossFit 8 Mile collaborates with Southgate Firefighters Charity to present the first annual “First Response Fights Autism”. Our mission is to bring the CrossFit community together to help educate their local municipalities on how to interact with people diagnosed with autism in emergency situations.

How does this benefit your local city? For Every gym that hosts “First Response Fights Autism”, their city will receive sensory bags and educational training video to learn how to deal with patients with autism. Additionally, our hope is to raise enough money to assist public school system’s special needs programs and therapy scholarships.
