A message from In Memory of Adam Gress:

Ranked 4 of 12 fundraisers - $715 raised by 4 supporters

The family of Adam Gress wishes to show support for Penn State Football Uplifting Athletes. Adam was an important part of the Penn State Chapter during his time as a Penn State football player. This cause was very important to him, and it remains important to his family that his legacy lives on through this event.

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

The 2019 Penn State Chapter Lift for Life is coming up and the Offensive 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.

Fans and supporters can make a pledge for the average number of bench press reps the Offensive Line knocks out. Our team goal is 19 total reps during our Lift for Life competition.

Lift For Life is the signature fundraising event for the Penn State 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 July 12th at 5:00 PM in Holuba Hall. The event is open to the public and we encourage everyone to come out and be a part of the special event.

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.

The Penn State Chapter

Penn State 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®.


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.
