Uplifting Athletes is pleased to have Davidson College join the nationwide network of chapters led by college football student-athletes.
Each chapter embraces the mission of Uplifting Athletes by using college football as a platform to inspire the rare disease community with hope through the power of sport.
Today, the challenges faced by the rare disease community are bigger than any one individual, team or organization can tackle alone. The Davidson Chapter, along with a nationwide network of teams, is uniquely positioned to educate and engage the local community to shine a spotlight on rare diseases.
The Davidson Chapter of Uplifting Athletes will hold its inaugural Lift For Life to support the rare disease community on Thursday, April 26th.
Lift For Life is the signature fundraising event for the Uplifting Athletes nationwide network of chapters.
“The Davidson College Uplifting Athletes Chapter is extremely proud to join the elite network of Uplifting Athletes chapters. At Davidson, our team prides ourselves on helping others each and every day,” said Davidson linebacker and chapter co-founder George Hatalowich. “We are both excited and honored to use our platform to raise awareness and support for rare diseases. We cannot thank Uplifting Athletes enough for this opportunity and their continuous support. We believe together we can tackle rare diseases for good.”
The 2018 Davidson Chapter Lift For Life is a competition among seven teams comprised of members of the 2018 Wildcats to see which squad can average the most bench press repetitions during Lift For Life.
Fans and supporters can make a pledge for every bench press repetition a particular team averages during the event. So find your favorite 2018 Davidson player and support his team by visiting the Davidson Chapter fundraising page.
The proceeds from Lift For Life support the mission of Uplifting Athletes and its charitable programs: Rare Disease Awareness, Rare Disease Research, Uplifting Experiences and Uplifting Leaders.
