Proceeds benefit Uplifting Athletes, Inc.
Based on 1 Touchdown worth $170
The Illinois Chapter of Uplifting Athletes will be holding a Touchdown Pledge Drive on December 12th versus Northwestern to shine a spotlight on the Rare Disease Community.
Fighting Illini fans can tackle rare diseases, by making a pledge for each touchdown scored against Northwestern. Then watch and cheer as each Illinois touchdown helps raise money to support the Rare Disease Community.
The challenges faced by the Rare Disease Community today are bigger than any one individual, team or organization can tackle alone. To create the change needed we all must rally together.
We have the opportunity to provide hope and NOW is the time to take action!
Proceeds from the Illinois Chapter 2020 Touchdown Pledge Drive support Uplifting Athletes and its commitment to create Uplifting Leaders, engage in Uplifting Experiences, fund Rare Disease Research, and expand Rare Disease Awareness.
How you can help
The Illinois Chapter
The student-athlete led Illinois Chapter serves the Rare Disease Community in honor of Andrew Carter, a former Illini offensive lineman who battled the rare disease acoustic neuroma in 2011. Carter never played football again, but his fight inspired the Illinois football program to help Tackle Rare Diseases.
