2021 SidelineCancerTBT Logo:


Sideline Cancer® started with a group of seniors at the Hollidaysburg High School in 2012.

It originally started out as Tackle Cancer, which surrounded a football game night and T-shirt sale campaign. However, at the Penn State Altoona Pancreatic Symposium in 2012, the Griffith Family Foundation was introduced to Jack Andraka, who is the 2012 Intel Science and Engineering Fair Winner, Amateur Cancer Researcher, Education Activist, Medical Entrepreneur, and an Innovator. He suggested a new name that would reflect all school activities and participation… And that started the conversation that eventually lead to the name “Sideline Cancer.”
