Lift For Life is the signature fundraising event for the Florida State 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 June 22nd in Dunlap Indoor starting at 11:00 a.m. Please come out and join us as we compete to help those affected by rare diseases.
The challenges faced by the Rare Disease Community are bigger than any one individual, team or organization can tackle alone. Here at Florida State we take pride in the opportunity to shine a spotlight on rare diseases and support Uplifting Athletes.
Fans and supporters can make a pledge for every rep our team averages of the 225-pound bench press test. Our team goal is to perform 10 reps during our Lift for Life competition.
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 Florida State Chapter started tackling rare diseases in 2013 when it joined Uplifting Athletes. Former FSU tight end Kevin Haplea started the Uplifting Athletes Chapter in Tallahassee. His inspiration came from former Seminoles head coach Jimbo Fisher and the battle one of his sons, Ethan, was enduring with the rare blood disorder Fanconi anemia.
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 Florida State 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.)
