Students at Washington County Middle School in Springfield are shooting hoops to fight heart disease and stroke, our nation’s No. 1 and No. 3 killers. During the month of February the school will hold its 5th annual Hoops For Heart event.
Students will play basketball to raise funds for the American Heart Association, which funds cardiovascular disease research and public and professional education programs.
Hoops For Heart is co-sponsored by the American Heart Association and the American Alliance for Health, Physical Education, Recreation and Dance.
