Every November, Fit For Fritz holds a walk-a-thon at the Penn State multi-sport facility to honor Fritz Spence and raise money for Hope Lodge. The event is planned and put on by Penn State Track & Field's athletes. In 2016, the event raised over $11,700 which was nearly 25% more than the previous year.
The event includes a walk, bake sale, raffle, karaoke, the bone marrow registry and dodgeball tournament between all of Penn State's athletic teams. We are in the works of growing our event so that we can include as many Penn Staters as possible as well as the surrounding communities.
