The Penn State Chapter of Uplifting Athletes, led by co-Presidents Trace McSorley and Jason Cabinda, is counting on the Nittany Lions offense to put a few touchdowns on the board Saturday, September 16 for its 2017 Touchdown Pledge Drive to support the rare disease community.
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 Penn State Chapter and all the members of the 2017 Nittany Lions squad is asking fans to support their efforts when Penn State welcomes Georgia State to Beaver Stadium by making a pledge through the Penn State Chapter online Touchdown Pledge Drive site.
Fans can simply make a pledge for each touchdown the Nittany Lions 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 Penn 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.
The Penn State Chapter, formed in 2003, is the charter Uplifting Athletes Chapter and served as the catalyst for what has become a nationwide movement. In 15 years the PSU Chapter has raised more than $1 million to support the rare disease community.
