The Princeton Chapter of Uplifting Athletes has put together a fundraiser for the Alumni Weekend showdown against Harvard this Saturday, and they're hoping for your help.

Pledges and donations for the Tigers' Alumni Weekend Points Pledge will be accepted for every point Princeton scores against the Crimson. Sign-up tables will be open on the concourse level of Princeton Stadium prior to kickoff and during the first half.

Donors will provide their contact information and receive a personal thank you from a member of the Princeton Uplifting Athletes Chapter along with details of how to fulfill the pledge.

Princeton is one of 14 Uplifting Athletes Chapters nationwide. The Princeton Chapter raises money and awareness for aplastic anemia, a rare blood disorder in which the body's bone marrow doesn't make enough new blood cells. Princeton chose aplastic anemia in honor of former teammate and captain Jordan Culbreath — the 2011 Uplifting Athletes Rare Disease Champion.

Uplifting Athletes is a national nonprofit organization aligning college football with rare diseases. 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.

The network of university chapters brings the mission of Uplifting Athletes to life.
