Florida State football players participated in a “Lift for Life” event on Saturday, raising funds for rare disease research.

More than $3,100 had been raised by Saturday night. Fans can still contribute by going here.

Lift for Life featured various FSU players going through strength and agility events at the indoor practice facility. Among the activities were flipping large tires, carrying 100-pound dumbells and pushing golf carts.

Funds raised go to a charity called Uplifting Athletes.

“We just want to be a part of that and give back to something that’s bigger than us and raise awareness to the rare disease community,” said linebacker DeCalon Brooks.

FSU athletes started the event in 2013 to raise funds to fight Fanconi anemia, the rare blood disorder that affected Ethan Fisher.
