When Derrick passed away in 2008, he left behind the groundworks for a foundation he dreamed of starting that focused on helping cancer patients manage the financial burden of this terrible disease. Derrick's family and friends carried out his dream and founded the Fight On Foundation in memory of him.
The Fight On Foundation strives to help local families (South-Central, PA and surrounding areas). The Foundation provides financial assistance to cancer patients and their families to allow them to focus on their treatments as opposed to the stress that is often brought about by the financial burden of cancer.
Our foundation organizes a handful of fundraisers throughout the year to raise money for the families we help. We have held a variety of fundraisers including golf tournaments, 5k walk/run, beef and beer event, a comedy show, a haunted trail, Lincoln Lodge Dinner, and more.
The Fight On Foundation has been the thankful recipient of a number of different grants from various organizations.
Sponsorship opportunities are available at most of our fundraisers, specifically our annual golf tournament. Individuals and businesses can sponsor specific events or choose to contribute on an ongoing basis.
