The Northwestern Football Chapter Lift for Life is coming up and our team is proud to dedicate our performance in support of Uplifting Athletes. Uplifting Athletes is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization which harnesses the power of sport to build community and invest in the lives of those impacted by rare disease.
Lift For Life is Uplifting Athletes’ signature event held by student-athletes at colleges and universities across the country. Our event is scheduled for May 25, 2023.
The challenges faced by the rare community are bigger than any one individual, team, or organization can tackle alone. Here at Northwestern, we take pride in the opportunity to shine a spotlight on rare diseases and support Uplifting Athletes so that no person feels alone.
Supporting our Lift for Life is simple! Fans can pledge for each 225 lb. bench press repetition we complete. Our goal is to average 15 reps during the event.
Because of generous donors like you, we have surpassed our original $5,000 goal. This has motivated us to push further for people impacted by rare disease and increase our defensive goal to $20,000. Let's see how big of a difference we can make!
Join our team by making a pledge today!
How you can help:
The proceeds from our 2023 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 Northwestern Chapter
When the Northwestern Chapter was formed in 2011, the Wildcats were inspired by former Northwestern and Notre Dame coach the late Ara Parseghian’s support of the rare disease Niemann-Pick Type C. More recently, the leaders of the chapter chose to use a personal relationship and added ALS as part of the motivation to support the Rare Disease Community through Uplifting Athletes.
