Maryland Day is a unique one-day celebration reserved for those who ever attended the University of Maryland.
As part of the 2016 Maryland Day on Saturday, April 30 the Maryland Chapter of Uplifting Athletes is using the big day on campus to raise awareness and funds for the rare disease community.
Members of the college football student-athlete led Maryland Chapter, along with a few of their Terps teammates, will be part of the Maryland Day Expo at McKeldin Terrace in front of the library from 10:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m.
Maryland football fans can come out and meet members of the 2016 football team and enjoy an interactive Terps Player Experience as part of the Maryland Day Celebration.
The Maryland Chapter will be accepting donations, or fans can visit Terps general donation page in support of the rare disease community.
The nationwide network of Uplifting Athletes chapters led by college football student-athletes help bring the vision of Uplifting Athletes to life, which is to empower people to take action against rare diseases and inspires the medical community to find cures.
The Maryland Chapter started tackling rare diseases in 2009 when it joined Uplifting Athletes. The student-athlete led Maryland Chapter serves the rare disease community in honor of former Terrapins quarterback Boomer Esiason.
