Former Nebraska offensive lineman Nick Gates has chosen to make the 2018 NFL Combine a platform to inspire the Rare Disease Community with hope through the power of sport.
Gates is doing a Reps For Rare Diseases campaign to raise money and awareness for Uplifting Athletes to support the Rare Disease Community.
Fans can pledge any amount for each bench press repetition Gates registers at the NFL Combine by visiting his Reps For Rare Diseases site.
The proceeds from this Reps For Rare Diseases campaign support the mission of Uplifting Athletes and its charitable programs: Rare Disease Awareness, Rare Disease Research, Uplifting Experiences and Uplifting Leaders.
Gates views Uplifting Athletes and the annual Nebraska Football Uplifting Athletes Road Race as an important part of his college experience, and that is why he chose to launch his Reps for Rare Diseases campaign.
“The road race and Uplifting Athletes was a very important part of my Nebraska experience,” Gates said. “I’m proud to now pledge my performance on the bench press at the NFL Combine to support Uplifting Athletes and its mission to help tackle rare diseases.”
