Proceeds benefit Uplifting Athletes, Inc.
Based on 20 bench reps, each worth $31
As I take a step toward my NFL dream, I’d like to use this opportunity to give back. I have committed my performance at the Northwestern Pro Day to support Uplifting Athletes and its mission to inspire the rare disease community with hope through the power of sport.
I was honored to be part of our Northwestern Chapter, and the Lift for Life experience with my teammates was something I will never forget. Uplifting Athletes was an important part of my college experience, and that is why I’ve chosen to launch my Reps for Rare Diseases campaign in support of the rare disease community.
Fans and supporters can pledge for each bench press repetition I perform (my goal is 22) at the Northwestern Pro Day on March 13.
Please join my team by making a pledge today!

Uplifting Athletes inspires the rare disease community with hope through the power of sport and empowers medical researchers to find cures. A rare disease is one that affects fewer than 200,000 Americans and consequently lacks financial incentive to make and market new treatments.
Founded in 2007, Uplifting Athletes has college football student-athlete led chapters nationwide in FBS and FCS programs including half the schools in the Big Ten and ACC conferences.
Northwestern started tackling rare diseases in 2011 when it joined Uplifting Athletes. The student-athlete led Northwestern Chapter has served the rare disease community on two fronts. The Wildcats were initially inspired by former Northwestern and Notre Dame coach Ara Parseghian’s support of the rare disease Niemann-Pick Type C. More recently, the leaders of the chapter chose to use a personal relationship and added ALS as part of the motivation to support the rare disease community through Uplifting Athletes.
Thank you for your support of my campaign and the rare disease community. Every little bit helps. Please don’t forget to share this campaign and your support on social media (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, etc.)
