Students and staff members at Stetson Middle School continue to do their part to help out the American Heart Association through their annual “Hoops for Heart” fundraiser. The spring fundraiser garnered $6,000.00 for the American Heart Association. In the past 11 years, the school has collected nearly $54,000.00 for the American Heart Association. All proceeds benefit medical research, education, and community service programs through the America Heart Association in the Pennsylvania region. 

Hoops for Heart is designed to teach students about teamwork while highlighting the importance of volunteerism.  The program also emphasizes the need for physical activity to maintain good health. Students formed 32 coed teams, consisting of two boys and two girls. The teams played five rounds of single elimination style games. Each team member must meet a minimum $10 donation to play. 

The event is co-sponsored by Stetson’s Health and Physical Education Department and the Stetson PTO.
