The 2019 Baylor Chapter Lift for Life is coming up and the Safeties are proud to dedicate our performance in support of Uplifting Athletes and its mission to inspire the Rare Disease Community with hope through the power of sport.
**Fans and supporters can make a pledge for each rep our team completes of 225 pound bench press. **Our team goal is to bench 225 pounds 88 times during our Lift for Life competition.
Lift For Life is the signature fundraising event for the Baylor Chapter. Lift for Life is an event held by our fellow college football student-athlete brothers at other universities across the country who have joined the Uplifting Athletes nationwide network of chapters.
Our Lift for Life is scheduled for July 24th. The event is private this year.
The challenges faced by the Rare Disease Community are bigger than any one individual, team or organization can tackle alone. Here at Baylor we take pride in the opportunity to shine a spotlight on rare diseases and support Uplifting Athletes.
How you can help
The proceeds from our 2019 Lift for Life support the mission of Uplifting Athletes and its charitable programs: Rare Disease Awareness, Rare Disease Research, Uplifting Experiences and Uplifting Leaders.
The Baylor Chapter started tackling rare diseases in 2014 when it joined Uplifting Athletes. The student-athlete led Baylor Chapter serves the rare disease community in honor of Jacoby Burks, a young man in Waco who battles Cerebral palsy.
Former Baylor wide receiver Levi Norwood had a relationship with Burks that went back to high school and committed to use his platform as a college football player to share their story on another level. The rest of his Baylor teammates joined in supporting Norwood and adopted Burks and his family as part of the Bears program.
A nonprofit organization founded in 2007, Uplifting Athletes inspires the Rare Disease Community with hope through the power of sport. A rare disease is one that affects fewer than 200,000 Americans and typically lacks financial incentive to make and market new treatments.
Uplifting Athletes fulfills its mission through a unique network of college football student-athlete led chapters, Uplifting Ambassadors and Team UA participants. Since its inception, Uplifting Athletes has raised more than $4.5 million in support of the Rare Disease Community with a third of that, $1.5 million, given to fund rare disease research.
Thank you for your support of the Baylor Chapter 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.)
