UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. , July 14, 2006 – The Penn State Football team's fourth annual Penn State Lift For Life® was a tremendous success, raising this year's contributions for the Kidney Cancer Association to a record $53,800.

Eighty-eight Nittany Lion football student-athletes tested their strength and endurance in an 11-event strength and conditioning challenge in front of more than 2,000 fans, friends and family in Holuba Hall.

With the record-setting total, more than $130,000 has been raised to aid in the fight against the disease for the more than 30,000 Americans who are afflicted with kidney cancer each year.

Twenty-two four-person teams competed in 11 events designed to test mental and physical toughness. ). The exercises for the competitors ranged from the bench press to carrying 100-lb. plates to the giant tire flip.

The winning team was comprised of defensive end Josh Gaines (Fort Wayne, Ind.), safety Spencer Ridenhour (White Plains, N.Y.), linebacker Tyrell Sales (Butler) and center A.Q. Shipley (Coraopolis).

Still want to contribute? You still have time! Lift For Life continues to accept donations through September.
