Aquebogue Elementary School
Students in every grade at Riverhead School District’s Aquebogue Elementary School raised $6,000 for the American Heart Association through the AHA’s Hoops for Heart program.
As part of the community service project, the students procured sponsorships to make as many jump shots as they could during a 30-minute “Super Shooter” contest.
Leading up to the culminating event, the students were trained in the fundamentals of basketball and received lessons on heart health and ways they can make a difference in the lives of those with heart conditions.
