College Colors Day is a fundraising event coordinated at a national level that allows participating organizations to show their support the first Friday of the college football season.

We are inviting you to join the Uplifting Athletes team and participate on in a "dress down" day this fall to show off your school spirit and raise funds and awareness for rare diseases.

Ask your company to be a part of our efforts by having participants donate $5 a person to dress down, sporting their school colors. Send an email to to register your company and learn more about this campaign. To download an informational flyer about College Colors Day, click here.

Uplifting Athletes, through the College Colors Day campaign, commits all proceeds to benefit the fight against rare diseases. A rare disease is one that affects fewer than 200,000 Americans. There are currently more than 7,000 rare diseases, 75 percent of which affect children.

Consider joining us in our efforts to make a difference in the rare disease community simply by cheering on your favorite college football team. On behalf of our growing network of 25 student-athlete led chapters, we thank you for your support.

Together…We Are…Stronger!
