Former Maryland defensive end Roman Braglio will make his upcoming NFL Pro Day a platform to inspire the rare disease community with hope through the power of sport.
Braglio, a 2016 team captain, 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 Braglio performs at Maryland Pro Day on March 29th by visiting pledgeit.org/roman-braglio.
The Maryland Chapter is approaching a decade of service to the rare disease community. The original inspiration for the Terrapins to join Uplifting Athletes in 2009 was the centered around legendary Maryland quarterback Boomer Esiason and his son Gunner’s battle with cystic fibrosis.
Being involved with the Maryland Chapter and Lift For Life was an important part of Braglio’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,” Braglio said. “I have committed my performance at the Maryland Pro Day to support Uplifting Athletes and its mission.”
