The Saint Francis Chapter of Uplifting Athletes, led by President Mike Ames, is counting on the Red Flash offense to put a few touchdowns on the board September 16 for its 2017 Touchdown Pledge Drive when Saint Francis welcomes Towson to DeGol Field.
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 Saint Francis Chapter and all the members of the 2017 Red Flash squad is asking fans to help in their efforts to support the rare disease community by making a pledge through the Saint Francis Chapter online Touchdown Pledge Drive site.
Fans can simply make a pledge for each touchdown the Red Flash 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 Saint Francis 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 Saint Francis Chapter started tackling rare diseases in 2012 when it joined Uplifting Athletes. The student-athlete led Saint Francis Chapter serves the rare disease community in honor of the younger brother of former Red Flash wide receiver Jeff Wasilewski.
