The Maryland Chapter of Uplifting Athletes will hold its annual Lift For Life event on Thursday, July 28th.
Lift For Life is the signature fundraising event for the Uplifting Athletes nationwide network of college football student-athlete led chapters.
The Maryland 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 seventh Maryland Chapter Lift For Life as part of Uplifting Athletes.
Terrapins fans are encouraged to come support the 2016 Maryland football team as it helps 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 leadership team has chosen to organize its fundraising efforts by position groups. You can find your favorite Maryland player and donate.

Proceeds from the Maryland Chapter of Uplifting Athletes annual Lift For Life supports rare disease research and patient focused programs.
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 Maryland 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 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.
Esiason’s son, Gunner, lives with the rare disease cystic fibrosis and his battle served as the inspiration for Maryland to join Uplifting Athletes.
