Students at Aquebogue Elementary School raised $6,000 for the American Heart Association through the AHA’s “Hoops for Heart” program.

The students were trained in the fundamentals of basketball and received lessons on heart health and making a difference in the lives of those with a heart condition. The students then obtained sponsorships as part of a community service project to make as many jump shots as they could during a 30-minute “Super Shooter” contest.
