Competition is scheduled to take place on July 15 from 2-9 p.m. in Holuba Hall, which is located in the Penn State Football complex.

Founded by Penn State Football teammates in 2003, Lift for Life continues to build awareness, and raise money for, the Kidney Cancer Association. This cause was selected when the football team realized that four player's fathers were battling kidney cancer and observed that there was a lack of funding for this disease due to the minimal response kidney cancer has to standard treatments such as chemotherapy and radiation.
The Lift for Life organization is a group of dedicated student-athletes and volunteers that are committed to promoting awareness and raising funds for charities that aren't in the national spotlight. Lift for Life also provides these student-athletes a way to combine the popularity of intercollegiate athletics along with the principles they learn through participation in sports to make a difference in the community.
