The Saint Francis Uplifting Athletes Community Day featuring the SFU Chapter Lift For Life is scheduled for Sunday, April 30 starting at Noon.
Lift For Life is the signature fundraising event for the Uplifting Athletes nationwide network of college football student-athlete led chapters.
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 Saint Francis Chapter is sharing its Lift For Life as part of a Community Day and will also offer a 5K run and a punt, pass & kick event for children. The Punt, Pass & Kick is exclusively for kids in grades K-8 only. The age group breakdowns are by grade: K-2, 3-5 and 6-8.
Kicking off the Community Day is the 5K run at noon. The race is open to runners of all ages and registration is $3 for children ages 12 and under and $5 for adults. The starting point will be the Saint Francis University Science Building.
Following the 5K run at approximately 1 p.m., the punt, pass & kick will take place on the turf inside DeGol Field.
The SFU Chapter Lift For Life featuring student-athletes from the 2017 Red Flash football team will start at approximately 1:30 p.m.
Fans can support the SFU Chapter and its Lift For Life fundraising efforts or register for any of the Community Day events by visiting the Saint Francis Uplifting Athletes Community Day fundraising site.
All proceeds (including registration fees) from the Saint Francis Uplifting Athletes Community Day featuring its 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 Saint Francis 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 Saint Francis Chapter started tackling rare diseases in 2012 when it joined Uplifting Athletes. The student-athlete led Saint Francis Chapter serves the rare disease community in honor of the younger brother of former Red Flash wide receiver Jeff Wasilewski.
Please support the Saint Francis Uplifting Athletes Community Day and help the Red Flash reach their $5,000 fundraising goal.
Thanks for helping the Saint Francis Chapter of Uplifting Athletes tackle rare diseases. Together…We Are…Stronger!
