Riley has been a proud member of the Syracuse Uplifting Athletes chapter since its inception in 2013. Riley helped with fundraising efforts, community involvement and participated in the annual Syracuse Lift for Life from 2013-2015.
For the Denver Broncos Week 13 matchup on the road in Miami, fans can support Riley and the Syracuse Chapter of Uplifting Athletes by making a pledge for every yard he averages punting during the My Cause My Cleats game with the Dolphins.

Syracuse started tackling rare diseases in 2013 when it joined Uplifting Athletes. The student-athlete led chapter serves the rare disease community in honor of Rob Long, a former Orange punter and team captain.
The Syracuse football program also enjoys a strong relationship with 8-year-old rare brain cancer patient Lillian Belfield and her family. Lillian’s attitude on life and her perseverance have been an inspiration to the Orange and the surrounding community.
Uplifting Athletes is a national nonprofit that 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.
Thank you for your support of the Syracuse Chapter and the rare disease community. Every little bit helps. Please don’t forget to share our Touchdown Pledge Drive campaign and your support on social media (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, etc.)
