Four former Penn State Nittany Lion football players are using the next step toward their NFL dream as an opportunity to give back and inspire the Rare Disease Community.
Each former Penn State standout is running a Reps For Rare Diseases campaign for the upcoming NFL Combine to support Uplifting Athletes.
Former Penn State Chapter Co-President, linebacker and team captain Jason Cabinda, tight end Mike Gesicki, cornerback Grant Haley and safety Troy Apke have each chosen to launch individual campaigns.
Fans and supporters can pledge to any one or all four players for each bench press repetition they perform at the NFL Combine in early March by visiting the 2018 Uplifting Athletes Reps For Rare Diseases page.
All four former Nittany Lions view Uplifting Athletes and the Penn State Chapter as an important part of their college experience, and that is why they chose to launch their Reps for Rare Diseases campaign.
Proceeds from all Reps For Rare Diseases campaigns support the mission of Uplifting Athletes and its charitable programs: Rare Disease Awareness, Rare Disease Research, Uplifting Experiences and Uplifting Leaders.
