Harrisburg Magazine’s “Simply The Best”


A lot of people ask why Uplifting Athletes is headquartered in Harrisburg, PA.  There are a number of strategic reasons for that decision: 17 target colleges within a 6 hour driving radius, access to major markets, low cost of living and high quality of life.  One benefit we may have underestimated was the potential to partner with the Harrisburg business community and build something that has a national impact.

Every spring, Harrisburg Magazine highlights businesses that local residents consider “Simply The Best.”  We want to invite you to say THANK YOU to our partners by taking a few minutes to cast a vote for them (and us).  Online voting is open until April 1 and you can access it HERE.  Please consider our recommendations below:
