We are competing in the 2019 Northwestern Lift for Life and need your help!

The 2019 Northwestern Chapter Lift for Life is coming up and The Flexin’ Felines 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. Lift for Life is an event held by our fellow college football student-athlete brothers at other universities across the country who have joined the Uplifting Athletes nationwide network of chapters.

Our Lift for Life is scheduled for Friday, May 24 at 4:00 PM at Martin Stadium.

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.

#WeTackleRare

Fans and supporters can make a pledge for every rep The Flexin’ Felines averages on 225 pound bench press. Our team goal is to average 13 reps during our Lift for Life competition.


Please join our team by making a pledge today!

How you can help

The proceeds from our 2019 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.


About Uplifting Athletes

A nonprofit organization founded in 2007, Uplifting Athletes inspires the Rare Disease Community with hope through the power of sport. A rare disease is one that affects fewer than 200,000 Americans and typically lacks financial incentive to make and market new treatments.

Uplifting Athletes fulfills its mission through a unique network of college football student-athlete led chapters, Uplifting Ambassadors and Team UA participants. Since its inception, Uplifting Athletes has raised more than $4.5 million in support of the Rare Disease Community with a third of that, $1.5 million, given to fund rare disease research.
