Ranked 2 of 2 fundraisers - $125 raised by 3 supporters

I'm participating in "Colgate Lift For Life 2019- Running Backs" benefiting Uplifting Athletes, Inc.. Please support me by pledging per rep during my fundraising campaign. I believe in Uplifting Athletes, Inc.'s mission and I'm excited to earn your support with every rep. Please help me reach the campaign goal of $600 by pledging now. I really appreciate your support. Thank you!

We are competing in the 2019 Colgate Lift for Life and need your help!

The 2019 Colgate Chapter Lift for Life is coming up and the Running Backs 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 averages of 225 pound bench press. Our team goal is to bench 225 pounds as many times as we can during our Lift for Life competition. We estimate the Running Backs will average around 14 reps during the Lift For Life.

Lift For Life is the signature fundraising event for the Colgate 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 19th at 5:30. 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 Colgate we take pride in the opportunity to shine a spotlight on rare diseases and support Uplifting Athletes.

Please join our team by making a pledge today!

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 Colgate Chapter

The Colgate Chapter started tackling rare diseases in 2008 when it joined Uplifting Athletes, becoming the second chapter to join the Uplifting Athletes network. The Raiders have been pillars of light in the community during that time, using their platform in honor of former offensive coach Casey Vogt and others that continue to battle rare diseases.

About Uplifting Athletes

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 Colgate 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.)
