Make-a-Wish continued the Light Up A Child's Life Campaign with two stops Thursday morning — the first at the Punxsutawney Area Middle School and the second at the high school.

The radio-thon's broadcast on 104.1 WPXZ was held at the high school from 8 to 9 a.m., with check presentations from the Future Health Services Club, Student Government, faculty and staff members, Juart Brothers Excavating on behalf of the Key Club, band parents and students.

Ashlynn Bartlebaugh made a donation in honor of her brother, Douglas, who was at one time a Wish Kid. The total amount raised from the Punxsutawney Area Middle School was $802.
