Penn State Football Ready to “Lift For Life”

Tomorrow, members of the Penn State football team will host the 9th annual Lift for Life event from 2-7pm in Holuba Hall. The Lift For Life event has generated over $500,000 for the Kidney Cancer Association since it began at Penn State in 2002. The annual event is set to include participants such as Matt McGloin, Derek Moye, and Michael Mauti.

Sophomore offensive tackle Eric Shrive has taken a particular interest in this year’s event. Last year, as a freshman, he raised an individual record of $8,500. This year, he set a lofty goal of $15,000, which he has already surpassed. The West Scranton native is now closing in on tripling his previous year’s total, and his current total stands at $23,115. The next highest fundraiser is fellow offensive tackle Mike Farrell, who has a current total of $9,480. Farrell is the President of the Penn State Chapter of Uplifting Athletes, which is the charity benefited by Lift For Life.

The team hopes to raise over $100,000 this year, and you can help them reach their goal by donating here. If you’re in town on Friday, be sure to check out Lift for Life!
