Friday evening's 10th Annual Uplifting Athletes "Lift For Life" was a huge success with the offense battling past the the defense in a seven-event competition while raising money for the Kidney Cancer Association.
Early indications are that the funds raised in 2012 will top the $100,000 mark for the second-straight year, bringing the 10-year total to more than $700,000 raised for kidney cancer treatment and research.
The six stations included two players from each team pushing 6,400-pound conversion vans, a medicine ball toss through the uprights of a goal post, a giant truck tire flip team relay, a shuttle run while carrying 100-pound bags, a sled pull and push and a farmer's carry.
The offense claimed all three pulls to score a 176-136 victory, and the unit will take some friendly bragging rights into the start of training camp, which begins on Aug. 6.
