We are competing in the 2018 Northwestern Lift for Life and need your help!

The 2018 Northwestern Chapter Lift For Life is coming up and the Defensive Line is proud to dedicate our performance in support of Uplifting Athletes and its mission to inspire the Rare Disease Community with hope through the power of sport.

Lift For Life is the signature fundraising event for the Northwestern Chapter and all student-athlete led chapters that are a part of the Uplifting Athletes nationwide network.

Our Lift For Life is scheduled for July 19th and is closed to the public.

The challenges faced by the Rare Disease 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.

Fans and supporters can make a pledge for every bench press rep the team averages. Our team goal is 20 reps during our Lift for Life competition.

Please join our team by making a pledge today!

How you can help:

· Pledge for every rep the defensive line average during Lift For Life

· Make a one-time flat donation

The proceeds from our 2018 Lift For Life support the mission of Uplifting Athletes and its charitable programs: Rare Disease Awareness, Rare Disease Research, Uplifting Experiences and Uplifting Leaders.

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!
