About Us

About the Foundation

The Chris Lytle Foundation, founded by UFC Legend, Chris “Lights Out” Lytle, represents the fighter in everyone. We are a foundation that fights for awareness. Awareness for Autism, suicide, bullying, domestic violence, rape and sexual assault. Our goal is to encourage, educate and empower everyone in our path so that they too can be a fighter to speak up and stand up for themselves and others. Without awareness and education there can be no change. We want to be a part of that change. If you would like to join us in being “part of that change” please contact us via email at chrislightsoutlytle@yahoo.com or on the foundation Facebook page. You can also take a look at some of the programs we offer on our Programs page.
