Former Arizona tight end Josh Kern will make his NFL Pro Day a platform to inspire the rare disease community with hope through the power of sport.
The former Uplifting Athletes Arizona Chapter President is excited about his Reps For Rare Diseases campaign to raise money for life saving rare disease research with Uplifting Athletes.
Fans can pledge any amount for every bench press repetition Kern performs at Arizona Pro Day on March 24th by visiting his fundraising site.
Arizona’s inspiration for joining Uplifting Athletes, rare disease patient and big-time Wildcats fan Andrew Valdez, lost his battle with Cystic Fibrosis in 2015. Kern was a pallbearer and spoke at Valdez’s funeral.
Being the Arizona Chapter President was an important part of Kern’s college experience and is why he chose to launch his Reps For Rare Diseases campaign.
“As I take a step toward my NFL dream, I’d like to use this opportunity to give back,” Kern said. “I have committed my performance at the Arizona Pro Day to support Uplifting Athletes and its mission.”
