Proceeds benefit Uplifting Athletes, Inc.
Based on 10 touchdowns, each worth $21
The student-athlete led Fordham 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 Fordham Rams play a home game against Lehigh and travel to Yale and Georgetown. Fans can support the Rams by making a pledge for each touchdown they score in all three games. We are projecting our team to score 9 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 Fordham Chapter
Fordham started tackling rare diseases in 2011 because of a personal relationship the team had with a young fan that inspired them to take action. The Fordham chapter continues to leverage their platform today in order to make a positive impact in the lives of those affected by 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. 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 Fordham Chapter and the Rare Disease Community. Also, please share our Touchdown Pledge Drive campaign on your social media to help us Tackle Rare Diseases.
