Feb. 9, 2024-- Hoops for Heart is a fundraiser at High School East organized by teacher Jamie Blondina.

Through it, students-- in lieu of gym class-- can pay $1 to shoot around in the gym. Or, if they don’t want to shoot hoops, their donation allows them to write their name on a heart that gets hung on the wall (right).

The money goes to the American Heart Association.

According to Blondina, the school's 2024 Hoops for Heart initiative raised $850 for the AHA.
