Students at Lutheran Central School in Brownstown recently received a dose of health along with a shot of learning while raising money for the American Heart Association.

The school’s National Junior Honor Society sponsored Jump Rope for Heart and Hoops for Heart programs, which encourage students to raise money through pledges.

Amanda Kaisler, the school’s third-grade teacher and National Junior Honor Society sponsor, said the fundraiser gives the students a chance to give back in a way that may be central to them.

“Everyone knows someone who has been affected by heart disease in some way,” she said.

Eighth-grader Erin Cutter said she thinks it’s cool to possibly be helping out other kids.

“When they have heart diseases they can’t do the normal things we can,” she said.
