Record Breaking Weekend For Our Partner, Uplifting Athletes

By Verbal+Visual • July 16, 2013

Verbal+Visual had a busy, yet rewarding weekend supporting some of our partner organizations at their events. Our founder, Anshey Bhatia, first journeyed to State College, PA for the 11th annual Lift For Life benefitting Uplifting Athletes. The Penn State football team competed in various strength and conditioning competitions and raised more than $133,000 for kidney cancer. This is the largest amount of money raised by the Penn State chapter since the first Lift for Life event, held in 2003. Anshey was able to spend time with Scott Shirley, founder of Uplifting Athletes, as well as Carolyn Konosky from The Kidney Cancer Association, another one of V+V’s partners.

Prior to this event, V+V helped facilitate a photo shoot for the Uplifting Athletes eCommerce site. We are excited to announce the Uplifting Athletes eCommerce store is slated to launch this August, and will serve as the main hub for fans to purchase Uplifting Athletes and Chapter-specific merchandise. Here are some behind the scenes shots of Friday’s photo shoot:
