The Florida State Chapter of Uplifting Athletes will hold its annual Lift For Life event on Wednesday, July 27th at 4 p.m. at the Seminoles indoor practice facility.
Lift For Life is the signature fundraising event for the Uplifting Athletes nationwide network of college football student-athlete led chapters.
The Seminoles Chapter will continue its 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 third Florida State Chapter Lift For Life as part of Uplifting Athletes.
Proceeds from the Seminole’s Lift For Life will benefit the rare disease community through Uplifting Athletes and its priority partnership with the Kidz 1st Fund.
Seminoles fans are encouraged to come out and support the 2016 Florida State football team as they 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 leadership team for the FSU Chapter has split up its fundraising efforts by position group. You can find your favorite player by position and make a donation to that position group.

The challenges faced by the rare disease community are bigger than any one individual, team or organization can tackle alone. The grassroots effort of the Florida State Chapter, along with a nationwide network of teams, is uniquely positioned to educate and engage the local community and shine a spotlight on rare diseases.
The Florida State Chapter started tackling rare diseases in 2013 when it joined Uplifting Athletes. The student-athlete led Florida State Chapter serves the rare disease community in honor of the Fisher family.
Former FSU tight end Kevin Haplea started the Uplifting Athletes Chapter in Tallahassee. His inspiration came from Seminoles head coach Jimbo Fisher and the battle one his sons, Ethan, endures with the rare disease Fanconi anemia.
