Sun Valley Hosts Annual Volleyball Marathon

The Volleyball Marathon, sponsored by the Sun Valley National Honor Society, was held on Friday, February 26.  More than $11,000 was raised to support various charitable organizations.   The money will also contribute to scholarship programs benefitting Sun Valley seniors.


More than 200 teams registered to compete in the marathon this year. The all night event began at 8:30 p.m. and ended a little after 6:00 a.m.  Sun Valley students camped out rooting on their favorite teams. The students had a great time and stayed to watch the championship game, where team 6 Gods took home the title.


The Sun Valley tradition has been a fund raising effort that started back in 1980.  Northley Middle School once again joined the cause with over 300 middle school students participating in a special marathon held on February 25.  


Over 1,000 Penn-Delco students took part in the 2016 volleyball marathon.  Congratulations to the NHS officers and advisor, Mr. Jim Page on coordination another successful Volleyball Marathon!
