Penn State Uplifting Athletes to Hold Touchdown Pledge Drive for Georgia State Game

by on September 13, 2017 4:17 PM

Penn State football’s Uplifting Athletes chapter is continuing a popular philanthropic effort — and it’s starting during Saturday’s game. Led by chapter leaders Trace McSorley, Jason Cabinda, and Andrew Nelson, the team will hold a touchdown pledge drive during Saturday’s football game against Georgia State.

Fans can pledge to donate between $5 and $20 for each touchdown the Nittany Lions score when they face off against the Panthers this Saturday.  Those who wish to make a one-time donation can also do so, with options ranging from $10 to $100, or enter a custom donation amount.

All of the money raised from this pledge drive will go to the many charitable initiatives set forth by the Uplifting Athletes program, including rare disease awareness & research.

Last season, the team raised nearly $18,000 with the same initiative during the Lions’ shutout victory over Rutgers.
