NC State Chapter announces annual Lift For Life to support the Rare Disease Community set for July 17th


The NC State Chapter of Uplifting Athletes will hold its annual Lift For Life to support the Rare Disease Community on Wednesday, July 19th at 5:00 p.m. inside the Close-King Indoor Facility. The event is open to the public.

Lift For Life is the signature fundraising event for the NC State Chapter of Uplifting Athletes. NC State is a part of Uplifting Athletes’ 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.

The 2019 NC State Chapter Lift For Life will feature a football team student-athlete run workout consisting of 7-on-7 and 1-on-1s. The competition portion of the Lift For Life will be between the offense and defense to determine which side of the ball can win the most 1-on-1 battles during the workout. Doors open at 4:45 and the Wolfpack welcome all fans to join them.

Fans and supporters can make a pledge for every 1-on-1 battle either the offense or the defense wins. So pick your favorite side of the ball and help the 2019 Wolfpack squad Tackle Rare Diseases by visiting the NC State Lift For Life fundraising site to make a pledge.

The proceeds from the NC State 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 NC State 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.

NC State started tackling rare diseases in 2011 when we joined Uplifting Athletes. The student-athlete led NC State Chapter serves the Rare Disease Community in honor of former Wolfpack offensive coordinator Dana Bible, who battled the rare disease acute promyelocytic leukemia in 2009.

Please support the NC State Chapter and help the Wolfpack reach their impressive $5,000 team Lift For Life goal.
