Once again, Lift for Life has brought in a sizable total.

As of Monday morning, the 14th annual Penn State Uplifting Athletes Lift for Life raised more than $73,000 to benefit rare disease research and patient programs, according to a press release.

This year’s figure is the highest in the country among Uplifting Athletes chapters (23 in all), and now brings the total raised by Penn State Uplifting Athletes since 2003 to nearly $1.2 million.

Donations to the Penn State Uplifting Athletes chapter and Lift for Life will remain open until Sept. 30.
