About Our Chapters

Uplifting Athletes network of university chapters brings our mission to life. As part of our Life Skills Program, each university chapter is run by current college football student-athletes and supports our mission of using college football as a platform to inspire the rare disease community with hope through the power of sport.

The challenges faced by the rare disease community are bigger than any one individual, team or organization can tackle alone. The grassroots effort of each Uplifting Athletes Chapter from across the country is uniquely positioned to educate and engage the local community and shine a spotlight on rare diseases.
