Uplifting Athletes


Uplifting Athletes is a full-service national nonprofit organization aligning college football with rare diseases and raising them as a national priority through research, outreach, education and advocacy. What makes Uplifting Athletes unique is that our university chapters are run by current football student-athletes, providing them with an opportunity to gain management and leadership skills while learning how to leverage their assets and abilities to make a positive and lasting impact. Current chapters include Boston College, Coastal Carolina, Colgate University, Fordham, Illinois, Kent State, Maryland, NC State, Nebraska, Northwestern, Notre Dame, Ohio State, Penn State, Princeton, Saint Francis (PA) and Wisconsin. Each chapter adopts one out of approximately 7,000 rare diseases (such as Aplastic Anemia, C-M-T, cystic fibrosis, Ehlers-Danlos, Ewing’s Sarcoma, Kidney Cancer, Leukemia, Niemann Pick Type-C, Neuroblastoma, etc.).
