Lift For Life is the signature fundraising event for the Uplifting Athletes nationwide network of college football student-athlete led chapters.
The Lumberjacks 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. The leadership team of the Northern Arizona Chapter has been working hard for more than a year to get all the pieces in place to hold this inaugural Lift For Life event.
This year the Northern Arizona Chapter Lift For Life will take place at the Walkup Skydome at 7 a.m. The Northern Arizona Lift For Life is open to the public.
Fans are encouraged to come out and support the 2016 Lumberjacks 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
“This is our first event, and we’re hoping to get the university and community out to support our cause,” said NAU Chapter leader Corbin Jountti.
For the fundraising, Northern Arizona has divided into offense and defense to create some friendly competition.

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 Northern Arizona 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 Northern Arizona Chapter started tackling rare diseases in 2015 when it joined Uplifting Athletes. Please consider helping the Northern Arizona Chapter of Uplifting Athletes tackle rare diseases.
