Philanthropy

Tradition Threads sells uniquely designed, historically-inspired, high-quality apparel for the top collegiate athletic programs in the country. In our efforts to stay true to our mission statement, we take part in the charity events most important to each school, such as donating to the Relay for Life hosted at Virginia Tech.

uplifting-logo.pngWe also partner with Uplifting Athletes. Uplifting Athletes is a national nonprofit organization that aligns college football with rare diseases and raises awareness for them as a national priority through outreach, research, education and advocacy. What makes Uplifting Athletes unique is their chapter network is run by current football student-athletes, providing them with an opportunity to gain practical job skills while learning how to leverage their assets and abilities to make a positive and lasting impact.

A rare disease is one that affects fewer than 200,000 Americans and consequently lacks financial incentive to make and market new treatments. Each chapter adopts one out of approximately 7,000 rare diseases (such as MS, ALS, cystic fibrosis, pancreatic cancer, etc.) – giving the football student-athletes an opportunity to make the cause relevant to them. They currently have chapters at Penn State, Ohio State, Maryland, Boston College and Colgate. Tradition Threads will donate 5% of every sale to Uplifting Athletes in hope of accomplishing their goals.
