Lift For Life is the signature fundraising event for the Penn State Chapter. The Penn State Chapter is a student-athlete led organization which is 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.
Thank you for your continued support of the Penn State Chapter Lift For Life!
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®.
