How you can help
The proceeds from our 2022 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 Penn State Chapter
The Penn State Chapter is the charter Uplifting Athletes Chapter and served as the catalyst for what has become a nationwide movement. Penn State has run a Lift For Life every year since 2003. Uplifting Athletes was founded in 2003 when Scott Shirley’s father, Don, was diagnosed with Kidney Cancer and the doctors gave Mr. Shirley only six months to live. The Nittany Lion football team rallied around the idea of leveraging a summer strength and conditioning competition into a fundraising event called Lift For Life.
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 $5 million to support the mission of Uplifting Athletes and its charitable programs: Rare Disease Awareness, Rare Disease Research, Uplifting Experiences and Uplifting Leaders.
