About Our Chapters

Uplifting Athletes network of university chapters brings our mission to life. As part of our outreach program, each university chapter is run by current football student-athletes and adopts a rare disease that has personal meaning to their team. Players hold special events, fundraising campaigns or awareness drives to attract fans and media, making their rare disease more popular and generating new money for research.
