The Clemson Chapter of Uplifting Athletes will hold its second annual Lift For Life to support the rare disease community on Monday, July 17th.
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 Clemson Chapter Lift For Life offense will battle defense in a head-to-head challenge to see which side of the ball can average the most bench press repetitions.
Fans and supporters can make a pledge for the average number of reps. So pick which side of the ball you want to support and make your pledge today by visiting the Clemson Chapter Lift For Life fundraising site.
The proceeds from the Clemson 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. Here at Clemson we take pride in the opportunity to shine a spotlight on rare diseases.
Clemson started tackling rare diseases in 2014 when it joined Uplifting Athletes. Founded by former kicker Chandler Catanzaro and long snapper Jim Brown, the student-athlete led Clemson Chapter serves the rare disease community in honor of an assistant coach who fought kidney cancer, a former player who fights Castleman disease, and a member of the Tigers athletic staff whose child battles neuroblastoma.
Please support the Clemson Chapter and help the Tigers reach their ambitious $15,000 team Lift For Life goal.
