ALTOONA, Pa. – Penn State Altoona men's basketball will host Brian Morden Foundation Night at its home game on Wednesday, February 6 at 7:00 p.m. against Grove City College.
It will mark the second year in a row that the Lions have partnered with the Brian Morden Foundation for an event at a home basketball game.
The Brian Morden Foundation was created to honor Brian, a 19-year-old who battled Ewing's Sarcoma for more than two years. He lost that battle on February 15, 2003, and the foundation was created to honor his legacy by fighting the disease. The Brian Morden Foundation aims to fund childhood cancer research, support the patients, families, and staff involved in cases of cancer, and raise money for Brian Morden Memorial higher education scholarships.
Fans who attend Wednesday night's men's basketball game will have the opportunity to donate to the Brian Morden Foundation. People can donate money, and they can also donate items for kids, such as crayons, coloring books, and toys.
