Proceeds benefit Uplifting Athletes, Inc.
Based on 8 touchdowns, each worth $82.50
The student-athlete led Colgate Chapter of Uplifting Athletes is using college football as a platform to shine a spotlight on the Rare Disease Community by holding a Touchdown Pledge Drive throughout the month of October.
During Touchdown Pledge Drive month, the Colgate Raiders play home games against Lehigh and Bucknell and travel to Cornell and Holy Cross. Fans can support the Raiders by making a pledge for each touchdown they score in all four games. We are projecting our team to score 12 touchdowns total! As the games unfold, watch and cheer as each touchdown scored helps raise money to support the Rare Disease Community.
The proceeds from our 2019 Touchdown Pledge Drive support the mission of Uplifting Athletes and its commitment to create Uplifting Experiences, fund Rare Disease Research, and expand Rare Disease Awareness.
How you can help
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

Uplifting Athletes fulfills its mission through a network of college football student-athlete led chapters, Uplifting Ambassadors and Team UA participants that support our charitable programs: Uplifting Leaders, Uplifting Experiences, Rare Disease Research and Rare Disease Awareness.
I hope you will join our team and make a pledge to support the Colgate Chapter and the Rare Disease Community. Also, please share our Touchdown Pledge Drive campaign on your social media to help us Tackle Rare Diseases.
