The NC State Chapter of Uplifting Athletes, led by President Cole Cook, is counting on the Wolfpack offense to put a few touchdowns on the board Saturday, September 16 for its 2017 Touchdown Pledge Drive when NC State welcomes Furman to Carter-Finley.
Uplifting Athletes chapters are run by football student-athletes. So, for fans, this is a great way to support the players on your favorite team off the field in their efforts to use the power of sport for social good.
The leadership team of the NC State Chapter and all the members of the 2017 Wolfpack squad is asking fans to support their efforts to help the rare disease community by making a pledge through the NC State Chapter online Touchdown Pledge Drive site.
Fans can simply make a pledge for each touchdown the Wolfpack score that day and they can follow along to see the impact they are helping the players make.
The proceeds from Touchdown Pledge Drive 2017 support the mission of Uplifting Athletes and its charitable programs: Rare Disease Awareness, Rare Disease Research, Uplifting Experiences and Uplifting Leaders.
The challenges faced by the rare disease community are bigger than any one individual, team or organization can tackle alone. The grassroots effort of the NC State 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.
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.
