For its home opener Stony Brook is also looking to use touchdowns to make a difference in the rare disease community.
To kick off the 2015 college football schedule at Kenneth P. LaValle Stadium, the Stony Brook Chapter of Uplifting Athletes will hold a Touchdown Pledge Drive.
For the game September 12 against Central Connecticut State, each touchdown the Seawolves score will benefit the Stony Brook Chapters efforts to raise awareness of and research funds for the rare disease medulloblastoma.
The 2015 Stony Brook football team is asking its fans to support the student-athlete led Uplifting Athletes Chapter by making a pledge through the Seawolves’ online Touchdown Pledge Drive site.
Formed in 2014, the Stony Brook Chapter is a champion for the rare disease medulloblastoma. Veteran Seawolves head coach Chuck Priore was introduced to medulloblastoma patient Joe Feminella in 2009 through a former college teammate and the nonprofit organization Friends of Jaclyn.
Priore and his football program have formed a lasting relationship with the teenager, who is in remission and cancer-free, and have made Joey a co-captain for the Seawolves.
Support the Stony Brook Chapter and its efforts to make a difference in the rare disease community by signing up for its Touchdown Pledge Drive today.
Uplifting Athletes is a national non-profit organization with 25 chapters nationwide with a mission to make a positive and lasting impact on the rare disease community through the power of college football.
