Our team will be holding the University of Maryland's annual Uplifting Athletes Touchdown Pledge Drive this week as we head into Saturday's game against Indiana.
Formed in 2009, Maryland's Uplifting Athletes chapter was inspired by former quarterback and NFL star Boomer Esiason's son, Gunnar, who is fighting an ongoing battle with cystic fibrosis.
Each touchdown we score this weekend against the Hoosiers is an opportunity to not only raise awareness for cystic fibrosis but also a chance to help fund research for the rare disease. We are asking our fans, friends, and family to help by making a pledge through our online chapter found here.
Additionally, you can keep up with all of our Uplifting Athletes events including our Lifts for Life on Twitter by following our chapter's account at @UMD_Uplifting.
