Our Story

Rare disease patients are fighting against a finite clock that doesn’t stop because of a global pandemic. Every summer since 2016, Lift For Life brought the Georgia Tech Community together in support of people affected by rare diseases. The annual Lift For Life was canceled this summer but we remain committed to letting the Rare Disease Community know that we won’t stop fighting for them!

Join the 7,000 Mile Challenge and let rare disease patients know that the Georgia Tech Community cares! Walk, run, bike, swim or roll to make everyone’s miles mean more and rally support for rare diseases. Hit the JOIN button to create your personal fundraising and mileage goal, then challenge yourself to hit those marks.

Thank you for going the extra mile for the Rare Disease Community!

The inaugural 7,000 Mile Challenge is a 10-day event starting July 17th that will bring focus and attention to the more than 7,000 known rare diseases. People affected by a rare disease are fighting against a finite clock that didn’t stop because of COVID-19. We’re letting the Rare Disease Community know that we won’t stop fighting for them!

Founded in 2007, Uplifting Athletes fulfills its mission to inspire the Rare Disease Community with hope through the power of sport with a powerful network of over 20 college football student-athlete led chapters, Uplifting Ambassadors and Team UA participants. Since its inception, Uplifting Athletes has raised more than $5 million to support the mission of Uplifting Athletes and its charitable programs: Rare Disease Awareness, Rare Disease Research, Uplifting Experiences and Uplifting Leaders
