Four former University of Illinois Fighting Illini football players are using the next step toward their NFL dream as an opportunity to give back.
Each is running a Reps For Rare Diseases campaign to support Uplifting Athletes and its mission to inspire the rare disease community with hope through the power of sport, empowering medical researchers to find cures.
Former Illinois Chapter President Joe Spencer, defensive end Rob Bain, long snapper Michael Martin and punter Ryan Frain each participated in the Illinois Chapter Lift for Life with their teammates.
