Welcome to the official site of the Midkiff Challenge Foundation, dedicated to supporting academics and athletics among the Parkwood Community and promoting the annual Midkiff Challenge fundraiser, a tribute game in memory of Joey Midkiff, Parkwood High School Class of 1993, who lost his life September 7, 1999.

The first annual Midkiff Challenge was held as one of the main events of the 10-year reunion for the class of 1992, many of whom have known and/or played soccer with Joey most of their lives. Because of the overwhelming response, and the enthusiasm in the community for the event, it has been held every year since then, except for 2005 when there was a scheduling conflict. The dates of the games in order have been:

August 9, 2002
August 8, 2003
October 15, 2004
August 18, 2006
August 11, 2007
August 9, 2008
August 15, 2009
August 7, 2010
August 20, 2011
August 17, 2012
August 17, 2013
August 23, 2014
August 15, 2015
August 13, 2016
August 12, 2017

The fifteenth annual Midkiff Challenge game will be held in August 2018, and after the game, this web site or The Midkiff Challenge Foundation Facebook Page will be updated with photographs.

Your support of this game helps our community, Parkwood High School, and the Parkwood athletic program, and provides annual scholarships to graduating Parkwood High School Seniors.

The Midkiff Challenge pairs Parkwood High School varsity soccer alumni against the current varsity soccer team. If you are interested in helping out at the Midkiff Challenge, or are interested in playing, please contact The Midkiff Challenge Foundation. The only qualification for players is that you be a former soccer player from the Parkwood Community, with a preference for those who graduated from Parkwood High School at least five years ago (occasionally exceptions are made).

We look forward to seeing you at the game!
