Grady's Hits To Beat Rare Diseases, Where Every Score Means More!

Help me make my hits go further this season!

Welcome to my campaign! This is Grady Loper, a 14-year-old baseball player from Hartland, Wisconsin. The game of baseball has changed my life in so many ways as I have battled rare diseases my entire life. I know firsthand the struggles people go through when their dreams can be interrupted by the challenges of their bodies.

God has blessed me with the ability to play baseball and the gift of persistence to keep fighting no matter the odds. I want to help use my gift to raise awareness for all rare diseases and give a voice to those kids who can’t.

This season, I will be playing 14U baseball for Hitters Baseball, participating in 15 tournaments around the Midwest as well as league play. During each game this season, I will have a chance to not only help my team with each hit I produce, but I can also help kids with rare diseases at the same time! This is where you can help my hits go further!

Please join me in making a pledge for each hit I make this season. All proceeds will go directly to Uplifting Athletes and their mission.

Thank you for supporting Grady and Uplifting Athlete’s mission to inspire the Rare Disease Community with hope through the power of sport. Every little bit helps. Please don’t forget to share our Team UA campaign and your support on social media (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, etc.)

About Uplifting Athletes

Uplifting Athletes is a national nonprofit that inspires the Rare Disease Community with hope through the power of sport and empowers medical researchers to find cures. A rare disease is one that affects fewer than 200,000 Americans and consequently lacks financial incentive to make and market new treatments. Founded in 2007, Uplifting Athletes has college football student-athlete led chapters nationwide in FBS and FCS programs including half the schools in the Big Ten and ACC conferences.
