Ryan Patrick Kishbaugh was born on July 26, 1984 and lived a full and active life until his untimely death on January 3, 2003.  He was diagnosed with cancer in October of his senior year at the Fayetteville Academy. While undergoing chemotherapy treatments, he led his soccer team to the state championship, played basketball, and graduated salutatorian of his class. Although accepted by many colleges, he chose Princeton University, but had to delay his schooling to undergo further treatments. He had a bone marrow transplant on November 19, 2002 and died from complications.

Although Ryan’s life was cut short, he somehow knew that he would still touch many lives. On the day he was diagnosed with cancer, he wrote in his journal, “I have a premonition that this story will not end in me, but will carry on and will bring hope to others.”

All proceeds from the tournament benefit the Carpe Diem Foundation. The mission of the foundation is to:
