Every year the seniors on the King of Hearts court compete to raise the most money for the American Heart Association. Members have come up with many creative ways to collect donations.
“Canning is important because it is a way to get a lot of people interested in donating to the American Heart Association,” said Adam Brightbill.
As of Tuesday, the current leaders for most raised money are Viraj Govani, Logan Horn and Brightbill.
“Cardiac disease is such a big issue,” said Govani. “It would mean a lot to raise money to help as many people as we can.”
Some of the court members are giving a reward in return for a donation to the American Heart Association.
“Selling candy bars has earned me a lot of donations,” said Govani.
Food has been a helpful factor that has gotten many students to donate. Brightbill gave out cake to people that donated, while Govani has sold king-size chocolate bars.
“Hopefully canning will make people more interested and aware of the topic of cardiac disease,” said Brightbill.
The court hopes to raise $30,000.
“That has been our main goal from the start,” said Govani.
