The NC State Chapter of Uplifting Athletes will hold its annual Lift For Life to support the rare disease community on Wednesday, July 19th at 7:00 p.m. inside the Close-King 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.
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 NC State Lift For Life will feature position specific drills, 7-on-7 and 1-on-1 competitions. Fans and supporters can make a donation to either the Wolfpack offense or defense by visiting their Lift For Life fundraising site.
The proceeds from the NC 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 NC State we take pride in the opportunity to shine a spotlight on rare diseases.
NC State started tackling rare diseases in 2011 when it joined Uplifting Athletes. The student-athlete led NC State Chapter serves the rare disease community in honor of former Wolfpack offensive coordinator Dana Bible, who battled the rare disease acute promyelocytic leukemia in 2009.
Please support the NC State Chapter and help the Wolfpack reach their $3,000 team Lift For Life goal.
