Clemson TD's against SCar will support Neuroblastoma research
The Clemson Chapter of Uplifting Athletes is looking to turn touchdowns into rare disease research dollars. In order to support the Tigers’ chosen rare disease, Neuroblastoma, the Clemson Chapter is holding a Touchdown Pledge Drive on November 29. Fans can support the football student-athlete led Clemson Chapter by making a donation through the Touchdown Pledge Drive site: https://www.pldgit.com/clemson. The Clemson Chapter formed in early 2014 chose Neuroblastoma to support women’s basketball director of operations Kathy Becker and her son Colt, as he battles Neuroblastoma.
This Touchdown Pledge Drive will be the first event the Clemson Chapter will hold to raise awareness and research funds for its chosen rare disease.

What makes Uplifting Athletes unique is that our university chapters are run by current football student-athletes, providing them with an opportunity to gain management and leadership skills while learning how to leverage their assets and abilities to make a positive and lasting impact. Each chapter adopts one out of approximately 7,000 rare diseases (such as Aplastic Anemia, cystic fibrosis, pediatric brain cancer, kidney cancer, Leukemia, Neimann Pick Type-C, Neuroblastoma,, Fanconi anemia, etc.).
