For the 10th year in a row, Darien head coach Rob Trifone and the Blue Wave football team will sponsor a lift-a-thon to support charity.

The team will compete in a weight lifting competition in order to raise money for Juvenile Diabetes from 3-5 p.m., Friday, March 8.

Players are asked to get sponsors to donate to Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF) for each pound that they can lift as they compete against players from the Fairfield Ludlowe Falcons.

Over the past decade, coach Trifone's teams have raised more than $50,000 for charitable organizations.

Anyone who would like to donate to JDRF and support the cause can contact coach Trifone at Darien High School by emailing
