Terps 'Lift for Life' raises $14k for the Boomer Esiason Foundation

The Maryland football team held its third annual 'Lift for Life' fundraising event Saturday morning as part of Maryland Day activities. "We're just trying to do whatever ever we can to give back," offensive lineman Justin Gilbert said. "There are a lot more people less fortunate than we are." The team said the 'Terps spent about 45 minutes on the team's practice field running through four different drills - the 10-yard tire flip, the cone drill, the prowler push and move the mountain - in order to raise money to fight cystic fibrosis.'

"Cystic fibrosis is an inherited chronic rare disease that affects the lungs and digestive system by producing unusually thick mucus; the condition can clog the lungs and lead to a life-threatening lung infection and can obstruct the pancreas and stop natural enzymes from helping the body break down and absorb food."

Nearly $15k in proceeds went to the Boomer Esiason Foundation. You can still donate here.
