Penn State football announced Sunday it’s taking part in Uplifting Athletes’ 7,000 Mile Challenge to help raise money to fight rare diseases.

While the team’s annual Lift For Life event was canceled due to the coronavirus pandemic, the Nittany Lions are still managing to partner with Uplifting Athletes this summer. The challenge will run until July 26, and players will log all of the miles they run during workouts and any other activities.

Fans can also join the cause by logging miles. Any exercise that requires you to run, bike, walk, or even swim can count toward’s the Nittany Lions goal of 7,000 miles and will help to raise funds in Uplifting Athletes’ fight against rare diseases.

Penn State football currently has 28 total miles logged and $3,242 raised out of its $10,000 goal. Twelve team members have joined the cause outside of the football team, and 43 separate contributions have been made.

You can join or donate to the Uplifting Athletes cause here. When joining, you can create your own personal fundraising, customize your mileage goal, and make your own donation.
