I'm Punting For Rare Diseases And Want You On My Team!
From funding research to hosting accessible events with professional and D1 collegiate athletes, Uplifting Athletes is creating a brighter future for all people impacted by rare diseases nationwide.
- There are over 10,000 known rare diseases.
- 30 million people in the United States living with one or more rare disease.
- 95% of rare diseases DO NOT have an FDA-approved treatment or cure.
- Uplifting Athletes seeks to change that and that's why I need your help.
To show my commitment to the rare disease community, I am personally pledging $500 per punt that I pin inside our opponents 20 yard line. I ask you to join my team, by donating or pledging any amount you are able to.
My former teammate at Syracuse, Rob Long, is currently the Executive Director of Uplifting Athletes. I was by Rob's side as he battled a rare form of brain cancer and this experience imprinted a special place in my heart to always support the rare disease community.
We are stronger together, so while I work on the field to help the Broncos win, we as a community will be working to raise awareness and funds to create a brighter future for all people impacted by rare diseases.
From the bottom of my heart, THANK YOU! Go Broncos - let's tackle rare!

Per Punt Inside the 20 Yard Line
4 punts downed inside the 20 in October!
The mission of Uplifting Athletes hits close to home for me. Watching Rob Long go through his rare disease journey and how he has given back to the rare disease community has inspired me to do the same.
Back in 2021, Rob and myself spoke with the NFL Players Podcast to share Rob's story, our Syracuse punting connection, and the why behind I am supporting Uplifting Athletes.
