Urban Students Raise $2,700 in Hoops for Heart Fundraiser
On November 28th students at Urban Middle School in Sheboygan jumped all over heart disease and stroke by participating in Hoops For Heart. The students raised more than $2,700.00 for the American Heart Association, which funds research, programs and education to fight heart disease and stroke, our nation’s No. 1 and No. 3 killers.
“I’m so pleased with the success of this year’s event,” said Patty Winkler, Hoops For Heart coordinator. “We all had a lot of fun, and the kids enjoyed learning about the importance of physical activity and how they can play a role in saving lives.”
Hoops For Heart is a program that promotes physical activity and heart health through playing basketball. It is co-sponsored by the American Heart Association and the American Alliance for Health, Physical Education, Recreation and Dance.
