Uplifting Athletes is building a community. Through the Uplifting Experience program people of all ages and all rare diagnoses are given an opportunity to create one-of-a-kind memories with an athlete, team, or sports organization. Uplifting Experiences bring hope and inspiration by harnessing the power of sports, and can take on many forms including game days, practice visits, day-in-the-life, special events, or care packages from an athlete or team. 

Uplifting Athletes is excited to invite rare individuals and families to join us for a spring practice visit with the Northwestern Football team at their practice facility in Evanston, IL on Friday, April 7 at 8:15am CST.

This event is inclusive and accommodates individuals of all ages and abilities. Ryan Fieldhouse is ADA accessible. Register at
