Benchpress for Cancer

In support of The Miriam, “Bench Press for Cancer”
Returns to Brown University for its 19th Year!

On Monday, October 16, Brown Football will host its 19th Annual Bench Press for Cancer on the Main Green.  The annual event was created in 2004 to help former team captain Lawrence Rubida ’05 and his family pay for medical bills associated with his battle against Ewing’s Sarcoma.  It continues a longstanding tradition of raising thousands of dollars to benefit the Cancer Survivorship Program at The Miriam, which is a principal teaching hospital for Brown University’s Warren Alpert Medical School.
