The 2006 Lift For Life is scheduled for Friday, July 14th, 2006 at 2 pm in Holuba Hall. The event's organizing staff includes several football players, including Darien Hardy, Jason Ganter, Mark Rubin, and Kevin Suhey. Team football manager Matt Workman and Penn State students Mark Mihalik and Greg Lisa are also assisting with preparations for this year's event.
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.
Fight On State is proud to once again be the official interactive partner of Lift For Life. Stay tuned to FOS for updates and interactive features for the event.
