Make my first season with the Minnesota Twins unforgettable by pledging to support the rare disease community with every home run I hit! As somebody who has been personally impacted by a rare disease, I ask that you join me in honoring the beautiful life of my sister Danielle who was diagnosed with trisomy 18 at birth. Together we can help Uplifting Athletes raise the profile for the 30 million Americans currently living with a rare disease.
My wife Brianna and I are excited to be teaming up with Uplifting Athletes again as we plan to take this year’s season to the next level! While I work on the field to help the Twins win, every dollar you pledge will enter you into a sweepstakes where we’ll be giving away signed gear, tickets, and more!
Last season our grassroots movement raised more than $55,000 to support the mission of Uplifting Athletes through each hit I recorded. This year I’ve also committed to matching dollar for dollar up to $75,000 this season. For those of you who are interested in pledges, this comes to $2,500 per home run I have estimated hitting over the next several months. We are in this campaign together. Our goal is $150,000. Let’s knock it out of the park!
