The Princeton Chapter of Uplifting Athletes will hold its annual Lift For Life to support the rare disease community on April 27 at 4:45 p.m. outside the Frist Campus Center.
Lift For Life is the signature fundraising event for the Uplifting Athletes nationwide network of chapters led by college football student-athletes.
Each chapter embraces the mission of Uplifting Athletes using college football as a platform to inspire the rare disease community with hope through the power of sport.
The 2017 Princeton Chapter Lift For Life is a competition that will pit the offense vs. the defense head-to-head on max bench press repetitions.
Fans can pledge based on the total number of bench press repetitions either the Team Offense or Team Defense averages. So choose your favorite side of the ball and pledge to support the Princeton Chapter in its quest to tackle rare diseases by visiting the Tigers fundraising site.
Proceeds from the Princeton Chapter annual Lift For Life supports Uplifting Athletes and its commitment to life skills development, patient focused programs and rare disease research.
Today, the challenges faced by the rare disease community are bigger than any one individual, team or organization can tackle alone. The Stony Brook 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 Princeton Chapter started tackling rare diseases in 2011 when it joined Uplifting Athletes. The student-athlete led Princeton Chapter serves the rare disease community in honor of Jordan Culbreath, a former Tigers running back.
Culbreath was diagnosed with a rare blood disorder and battled through his rare disease diagnosis to return to the field and finish his playing career. His inspiring story of hope not only led his Princeton teammates to form a chapter, Culbreath was also honored as the 2011 Uplifting Athletes Rare Disease Champion.
Please support the Princeton Chapter and help the Tigers reach their $15,000 team Lift For Life goal.
