As the Penn State Chapter continues its push to $1 million dollars raised for kidney cancer research, new president Ben Kline and the rest of his committed leadership team stays busy.

Kids Combine PhotoEarlier this year, despite the snow in State College, the Nittany Lions’ chapter ran a very successful Kids Combine. The idea was to treat it like a Penn State recruiting camp to help young kids learn some finer details of the game.

The Blue-White game this year was memorable. Each and every jersey featured an Uplifting Athletes patch on the right shoulder as a show of support for the rare disease community.

Following the game the jerseys were auctioned off on the Penn State web site in order to raise more research dollars. Also that day AAA South Penn made tweets on Twitter worth rare disease research dollars.

For each tweet with the hashtag #AAABlueWhite AAA South Penn donated $5 to the Penn State Chapter.

Also, next month is the ninth Mike Shimko Golf Tournament to benefit the Penn State Chapter in memory of Mike Shimko, who lost his battle with kidney cancer.

“My mother and I have always received tremendous assistance and support from the Penn State chapter president and from other members of the team,” Mike Shimko Jr. said.
