We are competing in the 2019 Stony Brook Lift for Life and need your help!

The 2019 Stony Brook Chapter Lift for Life is coming up and Team Fields 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.

Stony Brook Lift For Life: Team Fields includes the following members of the 2019 Stony Brook Seawolves: Tyquell Fields (Captain), Joe Detorie, Joshua Zamot, Mitchell Wright, John Corpac, Randall Hepburn, Lukas Merluzzi, Justin Burns, Chris Higgins, Elijah Duff, Kris McDonald, Dean Koukounas, Petey Wilkes, Larry Ross, Briand Dorgil, Luke Anderson, Peterson Octavien, TJ Morrison, Randy Pringle, Andrew Trent, and Brennan Shourada.

Lift For Life is the signature fundraising event for the Stony Brook 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 March 15th. The event is private this year

The challenges faced by the Rare Disease Community are bigger than any one individual, team or organization can tackle alone. Here at Stony Brook we take pride in the opportunity to shine a spotlight on rare diseases and support Uplifting Athletes.


Fans and supporters can make a pledge for each yard of our teams furthest medicine ball toss. Our team goal is 30 yards during our Lift for Life competition.

Please join our team by making a pledge today!

The Stony Brook Chapter

The Stony Brook Chapter started tackling rare diseases in 2014 when it joined Uplifting Athletes. Their inspiration comes from the long-term relationship between the Seawolves head football coach Chuck Priore and a rare disease patient, Joey Ferminella. That relationship between our program and Joey continues to be an inspiration for all of us.

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.
