The football team will also conduct a kids clinic from 11 a.m.-1 p.m. Cost to participate in the clinic is $15 per child. The participants also will receive a Lift for Life T-shirt.

More than 80 football squad members are expected participate in the Penn State Lift for Life and will be available for an autograph session immediately after the event in Holuba Hall. This year's Penn State Football poster will be available, while supplies last.

All proceeds from the Penn State Chapter 15th annual Lift For Life supports Uplifting Athletes and its commitment to life skills development, patient-focused programs and rare disease research.

Overall since its inception Uplifting Athletes has had an economic impact of more than $400 million on the rare disease community. For more information about Uplifting Athletes, visit
