Former two-time All-ACC offensive tackle Rod Johnson will make his upcoming NFL Pro Day a platform to inspire the rare disease community with hope through the power of sport.
Johnson 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 Johnson performs at Florida State Pro Day on March 28th by visiting his fundraising site.
Florida State’s inspiration for joining Uplifting Athletes to help tackle rare diseases in 2013 was head coach Jimbo Fisher’s son Ethan and his battle with the rare blood disorder Fanconi anemia.
Being involved with the FSU Chapter and Lift For Life in support of his head coach was an important part of Johnson’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,” Johnson said. “I have committed my performance at the Florida State Pro Day to support Uplifting Athletes and its mission.”
