Crossfit for a Cause (Alabama College of Medicine)

This event is in partnership with a group on campus, but our goals align for this mutual cause. This event is to raise funds for the Artisan Health initiative which is:   "Helping Everyone Achieve Living Their Healthiest."       

The Artisan Health Initiative is a scholarship program set up by Artisan CrossFit to help the local community achieve health through fitness. This fund will be used to provide 60 days worth of membership to individuals in the Dothan area.      

During these 60 days, Artisan CrossFit's staff plans to help individuals learn how to move well, eat well, and how to best treat and manage their chronic illnesses. By doing this we hope to help as many people as possible to switch to a healthier lifestyle and help them become the healthiest they can be.

Kevin James Milbert


My name is Kevin James Milbert and I am a third-year medical student at the Alabama College of Osteopathic Medicine. I am from Lake Worth, Florida and I grew up playing an abundance of competitive sports including basketball, soccer, and swimming. In my free time, I enjoy weight-lifting and playing volleyball with friends at school. I hold physical activity in very high regards because of the plethora of benefits it confers on emotional, mental, and physical health. To further my knowledge of exercise science, I earned my personal trainer certification from the American College of Sports Medicine in September of 2019. I plan on utilizing both my knowledge and passion for exercise to further enhance the physical health of the Dothan community and improve wellness among all healthcare workers.
