Georgia Tech Chapter Touchdown Pledge Drive '17, Where Every Yellow Jacket Score Means More!

The student-athlete led Georgia Tech 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.

For the home game against Pittsburgh on September 16th, fans can support the 2017 Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets by making a pledge for each touchdown they score.

The proceeds from our 2017 Touchdown Pledge Drive support the mission of Uplifting Athletes and its charitable programs: Rare Disease Awareness, Rare Disease Research, Uplifting Experiences and Uplifting Leaders.

  • Make a one-time flat DONATION

The Georgia Tech Chapter

Georgia Tech started doing its part to serve the rare disease community starting in 2015 when former Yellow Jackets offensive lineman Trey Klock started the chapter. His inspiration was formed after two members of his family were affected by rare diseases and his personal story served as an inspiration for his teammates to support his efforts.

About Uplifting Athletes

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!
