Students put their basketball skills to good use at John G. Dinkelmeyer Elementary School in the North Bellmore School District by taking part in the Hoops for Heart campaign. The fitness initiative benefits the American Heart Association.
Physical education teacher Jim Mulvey said that students participated in various basketball games, including shooting competitions, relay races and one-on-one and two-on-two matches. Students and families could make voluntary donations, and the school raised a total of $524 for the American Heart Association, which will help cure heart disease.
