On July 24, 2009, millions tuned in to the FOX channel as professional wrestler Bill Goldberg braved the classroom to test his knowledge of elementary school subjects on ARE YOU SMARTER THAN A 5th GRADER? - Celebrity Charity Edition.

Bill learned about Progeria and PRF’s work through car designer guru Chip Foose and YearOne President Kevin King at the 2007 Braselton Bash car show supporting PRF. Shortly thereafter, he was approached by FOX and generously chose The Progeria Research Foundation to benefit from his appearance. How exciting to hear PRF’s name on a national TV show!

ARE YOU SMARTER THAN A 5th GRADER? is an award-winning, unique game show measuring adults' lack of knowledge as they tackle school subjects learned decades ago. They can "cheat" through advice from real grade-schoolers. Contestants compete for cash that is then donated to their chosen charity. PRF received $25,000 - Thank You Bill, we think you made the SMART choice to support PRF!
