Hartford High School athletes are raising money to keep the program developing with a special event Monday night.
The annual Lift-A-Thon is raising money for a new weight room. Football coach Lewis Whitson says the new facility is sorely needed.
Land and $25,000 have already been donated for the new weight room.
The Lift-A-Thon officially begins at 5 pm at Hartford's old gymnasium. Residents can offer a flat donation or they can donate by the pound. If you're writing a check, make it payable to Southern Lyon County Education Fund with "strength and conditioning" in the memo line and then mail that to 100 Commercial Suite B in Hartford, ZIP 66854. You can also donate online at www.ucaring.com/jaguarstrengthandconditioning.
