The Fordham Football Chapter of Uplifting Athletes, under the leadership of Deondre Carter, Matt Dengler, Jack Gildea, and Jonah Issac, will hold its annual Lift For Life to support the Rare Disease Community on Tuesday, July 31st.
Lift For Life is the signature fundraising event for the Fordham Chapter of Uplifting Athletes. Fordham football is one of 22 chapters in Uplifting Athletes nationwide network of chapters led by college football student-athletes.
Each chapter embraces the mission of Uplifting Athletes using college football as a platform to inspire the Rare Disease Community with hope through the power of sport.
The 2018 Fordham Chapter Lift For Life features a 225-pound max rep bench press competition between the offense and defense going head-to-head.
Fans and supporters can make a pledge for the average number of bench press repetitions one side of the ball averages during the event. So find your favorite 2018 Rams player on offense or defense and support his team by visiting the Fordham Football Lift For Life site. You can also make a general donation to the Fordham Chapter in support of Lift For Life.
The proceeds from the 2018 Lift For Life support the mission of Uplifting Athletes and its charitable programs: Rare Disease Awareness, Rare Disease Research, Uplifting Experiences and Uplifting Leaders.
Today, the challenges faced by the Rare Disease Community are bigger than any one individual, team or organization can tackle alone. The Fordham 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.
Fordham started tackling rare diseases in 2011 because of a personal relationship the team had with a young fan that inspired them to take action. The Fordham chapter continues to leverage their platform today in order to make a positive impact in the lives of those affected by rare diseases.
Please support the Fordham Chapter and help the Rams reach their impressive $3,000 team Lift For Life goal.
