Touchdown Pledge Drive against Rutgers, Rutgers, Rutgers.

Coach Franklin is asking fans to #WearWHITE at Rutgers and we are asking you to join our team for the third annual Penn State Uplifting Athletes Touchdown Pledge Drive to support the rare disease community.

We are challenging all of you to pledge any amount and help us reach our team goal of $1,000 per touchdown. And if you help us accomplish this before kickoff on Saturday night…one of our donors has agreed to pledge another $1,000 per touchdown!

Together, we can raise money for life saving research and inspire the rare disease community with hope through the power of sport.


We’re asking fans, family, and friends to make a donation by pledging any dollar amount per touchdown we score against Rutgers. You can make a pledge per touchdown or a one-time flat donation. Proceeds will benefit Uplifting Athletes, which supports rare disease research and patient focused programs.

    • $5 per TD can provide an “Uplifting Experience” for a rare disease family at Lift For Life
    • $10 per TD can reach up to 4,000 people to raise awareness about rare diseases
    • $25 per TD can help recruit new teams to join the Uplifting Athletes chapter network
    • $50 per TD can contribute to a medical research grant in one of five rare disease categories

The last two seasons, our PLEDGE IT campaigns have raised over $13,300. Together, we can light up the scoreboard and White Out Rare Diseases.


You can earn the following incentives by signing up to be a fundraiser, sharing the link to your personal PLEDGE IT page, and finishing in the top three on the leaderboard!

  • 1st PLACE: Limited edition, Blue or White jersey with Uplifting Athletes patch from the 2015 Spring Game.
  • 2nd PLACE: Official IRON LION t-shirt
  • 3rd PLACE: Nike Dri-Fit Uplifting Athletes t-shirt

Thank you for your support and generosity! Every donation can make a difference. If you can’t make a donation you can support our campaign by sharing it with your friends and family via Email, Twitter, and Facebook.

Together…We Are…Stronger!
