The Penn Chapter of Uplifting Athletes is using the 2016 Ivy League season to support its mission of using college football as a platform to inspire the rare disease community with hope through the power of sport.
Each touchdown on offense, turnover on defense and kicking point from the special teams during the Quakers’ seven-game Ivy League slate this season will support the rare disease community.
Moved by former player Kaleb Germinaro, recently diagnosed with MS, David Fajgenbaum, a Castleman’s Disease Researcher who has the disease himself, and Vhito Decapria, five year old team captain and brain cancer survivor, the Quakers are full speed ahead this season to raise awareness and money for rare diseases. They need YOUR help to do that.
Proceeds from the Penn Chapter of Uplifting Athletes Football Pledge Drive supports rare disease research and patient focused programs.
