Lift-a-thon to raise funds for football team
From 8 a.m. to 10 a.m. July 28, the Tonganoxie High School football team will have a Lift-a-thon to gauge its improvements and raise funds for the team.
The Lift-a-thon will be on the football field. Players line up sponsors.
Elston said they might even play a game of 7-on-7. He would also like to have a session where the parents can try some of the drills that the players will execute at practice. He wants the parents to have the chance to become more involved
