Lift A Thon

The Penn Manor Comet Football Team participates in an Iron Comet Lift-A-Thon to support the Four Diamonds. This event began in 2016 and continues annually in coordination with the Penn Manor Mini Thon.

The Four Diamonds mission is to conquer childhood cancer by assisting children treated at Penn State Hershey Children's Hospital and their families through superior care, comprehensive support, and innovative research. Since its creation in 1972, Four Diamonds has helped 1,000's of children and families and supported a diverse platform of childhood cancer research at Penn State Hershey Children's Hospital, seeking improved treatments and cures to benefit those around the world. Because of the community's steady and generous support, Four Diamonds has been able to assist 100% of the childhood cancer patients who have been treated at Penn State Hershey.

Each athlete lifted 70% of thier body weight in 3 core lifts; bench, squat, and the deadlift. The number of repetitions were counted and added together for each of the 3 lifts to determine a total. Each athlete targeted to reach 50 to 80 reps depending on their strength. Each year the Penn Manor team has raised from $2,500 to $3,200 annually.
