Help Football Players Fight Castleman Disease

Make a Pledge: Offense | Defense

PHILADELPHIA - Penn Football players need you help.

The Quakers are teaming up to fight Castleman Disease and are willing to earn every cent. Fans will pledge a donation for every touchdown or turnover the Quakers tally this year as the offensive and defensive players compete to see who can raise the most money this year.

The Penn Football team is part of Uplifting Athletes, a national nonprofit organization where each campus chapter is run by football student-athletes and works to elevate its chosen rare disease as a national priority through outreach, research, education and advocacy.
