For the fifth consecutive year the Princeton Chapter of Uplifting Athletes will hold a Lift For Life event on its New Jersey campus.
The Tigers’ rare disease story is personal and involves a former teammate, Jordan Culbreath, and his journey with a rare blood disorder that started in 2010.Culbreath returned to play his senior season and his inspirational story earned him the Uplifting Athletes Rare Disease Champion Award in 2011.
Lift For Life is the signature fundraising event for the Uplifting Athletes nationwide network of college football student-athlete led chapters.
The Tigers Chapter will continue their mission of using college football as a platform to inspire the rare disease community with hope through the power of sport. This will be the fifth Princeton Chapter Lift For Life as part of Uplifting Athletes.
