The Florida State Chapter of Uplifting Athletes will hold its annual Lift For Life to support the rare disease community on Tuesday, July 18th at 5:00 p.m. inside the Albert J. Dunlap Indoor Facility. The event is open to the public.
Lift For Life is the signature fundraising event for the Uplifting Athletes nationwide network of chapters led by college football student-athletes. The Tallahassee based FSU Chapter is under the leadership of junior center Alec Eberle and sophomore tackle Josh Ball.
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.
Fans and supporters can make a donation to any one of the seven position groups for the Seminoles or simply make a general donation to support the FSU Chapter by visiting the Seminoles Lift For Life fundraising page.
The proceeds from the Florida State 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 Florida State we take pride in the opportunity to shine a spotlight on rare diseases to support Uplifting Athletes along with our priority partner Kidz1stFund.
Florida State started tackling rare diseases in 2013 when the Seminoles joined Uplifting Athletes. The FSU Chapter serves the rare disease community in honor of the Fisher family. Former Seminoles tight end Kevin Haplea started the chapter in Tallahassee. His inspiration came from head coach Jimbo Fisher and the battle one of his sons, Ethan, edures with the rare disease Fanconi anemia.
Please support the Florida State Chapter and help the Seminoles reach their $5,000 team Lift For Life goal.
