  -The Lift-A-Thon is a fundraiser for the Thomas Heyward Weight Room and Football Program. This will be the first ever lift-a-thon at Thomas Heyward Academy. During the lift-a-thon there will be 50/50 raffle, food, and much more.

 

How does it work?

  - The lift-a-thon is basically the same thing as a walk-a-thon which a person will give a pledge such as .10 cent for a pound. So, if a person lifts 500 pounds the donor would owe $50. In the weight room the athletes will do three lifts, such as bench, squat, and power clean. The grand total of all the lifts will be the number of pounds they lifted that day.

When is it?

  -The Thomas Heyward Lift-A-Thon will be on March 24th.

Are there any prizes?

-Yes, there will be a 50/50 raffle and $100 gift cards for the people who lift the most weight, pound for pound, and the person that brings the most money per pound.
