The 2018 Penn State Chapter Lift For Life is coming up and the Defensive Line are 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.
Fans and supporters can make a pledge for the average number of bench press reps the Defensive Line knock out. Our team goal is 18 total reps during our Lift for Life competition.
Lift For Life is the signature fundraising event for the Penn State Chapter and all student-athlete led chapters are a part of the Uplifting Athletes nationwide network.
The 16th Annual Lift For Life is scheduled for June 30th at 11:00 AM . The event is open to the public and will take place in Holuba Hall on the University Park Campus.
The challenges faced by the rare disease community are bigger than any one individual, team or organization can tackle alone. Here at Penn State we take pride in the opportunity to shine a spotlight on rare diseases and support Uplifting Athletes.
Please join our team by making a pledge today!

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.
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 only gave Mr. Shirley 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®.

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.
