Putting their hearts into it
Tuesday, May 21, 2013
For the past several years, Lacamas Heights Elementary students have raised money for the American Heart Association. This year, 115 students participated in AHA’s Hoops for Hearts program.
It was coordinated by Jeanie Moran, Lacamas Heights physical education teacher. In all, the students raised $10,925 for the AHA, which is $4,745 more than last year.
"Hoops for Heart is a great event because it allows us to teach the kids about community service, as well as educate them about the heart, heart disease, and the role that exercise plays in heart health," said Moran.
