The South Carolina Chapter of Uplifting Athletes will hold its annual Lift For Life event on Friday, June 26.
The event will take place at USC’s new football outdoor practice fields beginning at 4 p.m. and is open to the public.
The Gamecocks will continue their mission of raising awareness and research dollars for Pelizaeus Merzbacher, the chosen rare disease of the USC chapter.
“Going into our third year, this Lift For Life is shaping up to be even better than before,” USC chapter president Devin Washington said. “Each year we look to grow, and with the help of Gamecock Nation fans there’s not a doubt in my mind that this year’s event will be our biggest yet.”
Lift For Life is the signature fund-raising event for the Uplifting Athletes nationwide network of 25 college football student-athlete led chapters.
The USC Lift for Life fund-raising page features 10 unique teams that are comprised of 10 or 11 players from the 2015 football team.

“When you have the best fan base in the country you can’t help but expect the best support when it comes to a great cause such at Uplifting Athletes,” Washington said.
