Former Temple football standout Nick Sharga has chosen to make his NFL Pro Day a platform to inspire the rare disease community with hope through the power of sport.
The fullback is doing a Reps For Rare Diseases campaign with Uplifting Athletes to support the Rare Disease Community.
Fans and supporters can join Nick and Uplifting Athletes to help tackle rare diseases by making a pledge today for every bench press repetition Sharga performs at the Temple Pro Day on March 19th by visiting his Reps For Rare Diseases fundraising site.
“As I take a step toward my NFL dream, I’d like to use this opportunity to give back,” Sharga said. “I have committed my performance at the Temple Pro Day to support Uplifting Athletes and its mission to help tackle rare diseases.”
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.
Uplifting Athletes is a national nonprofit that inspires the rare disease community with hope through the power of sport.
Founded in 2007, Uplifting Athletes has college football student-athlete led chapters nationwide in FBS and FCS programs including half the schools in the Big Ten and ACC conferences.
