Close to $5,000 will be added to the pot as Hartford High students held their second annual Lift-A-Thon on Monday night.
Money will help to build a new weight facility, and football coach Lewis Whitson thanked area residents for their support.
This will be added to $25,000 already donated plus land for the site.
People can still donate to the project by going online to www.ucaring.com/jaguarstrengthandconditioning or they can mail checks to Hartford High, 100 Commercial Suite B in Hartford, ZIP 66854. Mail checks to the South Lyon County Education Foundation with "strength and conditioning" in the memo line.
