Stony Brook Chapter seventh annual Lift For Life to help Tackle Rare Diseases set for March 8th


The Stony Brook Chapter of Uplifting Athletes will hold its annual Lift For Life to support the Rare Disease Community on Sunday, March 8th.

Lift For Life is the signature fundraising event for the Stony Brook Chapter of Uplifting Athletes. Stony Brook 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 2020 Stony Brook Chapter Lift For Life will be a competition featuring a medicine ball toss competition between six football student-athlete led fundraising teams.

Fans and supporters can pledge every yard of the longest medicine ball toss for each team. So choose your favorite team comprised of Seawolves players and visit the Stony Brook Chapter Lift For Life fundraising page to pledge now! You can also make a flat donation to any team.

The proceeds from the 2020 Stony Brook Chapter 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 Stony Brook 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 Stony Brook Chapter started tackling rare diseases in 2014 when it joined Uplifting Athletes. Their inspiration comes from the long-term relationship between Seawolves head football coach Chuck Priore and a rare disease patient, Joey Ferminella. That relationship between our program and Joey continues to serve as an inspiration for all of us.

Please support the Stony Brook Chapter and help the Seawolves reach their impressive $6,000 team Lift For Life goal.
