Lift for Life planned

STATE COLLEGE — Lift For Life is the signature fundraising event for the Uplifting Athletes’ nationwide network of chapters led by college football student-athletes.

The Penn State Chapter of Uplifting Athletes will hold its annual Lift For Life to support the Rare Disease Community on Friday, July 23.

PSU is once again excited to inspire the Rare Disease Community with hope by holding a Lift For Life in 2021.

Unfortunately, with the ongoing safety concerns, Lift For Life will be closed to the public this year. The Nittany Lions are excited at the prospect of returning to a public Lift For Life event in the summer of 2022.

The 2021 Penn State Chapter Lift For Life will be a competition featuring a 225-pound bench press competition between the nine football position group fundraising teams.

Fans can select to support any of the nine position groups and pledge for the average number of bench press repetitions they put up. Fans can donate by visiting pledgeit.org/psulift21 or one can also make a flat donation to any team.

Proceeds from the 2021 Lift For Life support Uplifting Athletes and its commitment to create Uplifting Leaders, engage in Uplifting Experiences, fund Rare Disease Research, and expand Rare Disease Awareness.
