Dragon Football To Host Lift-A-Thon

by LeeAnn Morgan

According to head Junior High Coach/High School Defensive Coordinator, Doug Milholen, the DeWitt Dragons will host a Lift-A-Thon in the Dragon Weight Room on Monday, April 22 from 4:00-6:00 pm. This Lift-A-Thon will be a major fundraiser for the football program. The money raised will be used to help pay for practice equipment improvements, weight equipment, and player workout clothes.

Each participant, with the help of his parents, will seek sponsors and donations for the Lift-A-Thon. They are currently seeking pledges and will continue to do so until their money and forms are due on May 6th.

The weight room will be open to the public on April 22nd at 4:00 pm so the parents and community can watch the lifting action. The participants will attempt a maximum lift in Bench Press, Squat, Deadlift, and Power Clean. The player will have a four lift total.
