2013 Rare Disease Champion Award
The Rare Disease Champion Award is given to a leader in college football, individual, or organization, who has realized his or her potential to make a positive and lasting impact on the rare disease community. Uplifting Athletes believes the accomplishments of all of the finalists are admirable. The stories of adversity and triumph were not only inspiring to us as an organization, but also to the communities which these leaders reside.
Last year, the Uplifting Athletes Rare Disease Champion was decided by more than 76,000 voters nationwide. This year’s Rare Disease Champion trophy will be presented at the Maxwell Football Club's nationally televised Awards Gala on March 1, 2013, in Atlantic City.
