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

The 2019 Eastern Illinois Chapter Lift for Life is coming up and the East Side Glory Boyz 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 average 10 bench press reps per player during our Lift for Life competition.

Lift For Life is the signature fundraising event for the Eastern Illinois 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 at O'Brien Field in Charleston, IL. Doors are open at noon and the event will begin at 12:30.

The challenges faced by the Rare Disease Community are bigger than any one individual, team or organization can tackle alone. Here at Eastern Illinois 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 Eastern Illinois Chapter

Uplifting Athletes is pleased to have Eastern Illinois University join the nationwide network of chapters led by college football student-athletes. The 2019 Lift For Life is their first event to support the Rare Disease Community.

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.
