Students, parents, teachers and members of the Brewerton Elementary community rallied together to raise money for the American Heart Association.
Brewerton Elementary participated in the American Heart Association’s annual Jump Rope for Heart under the leadership of teaching assistant Gail Jones.
The event helps raise money for continued research, treatment and prevention and making sure that individuals with cardiovascular concerns receive the best care possible.
This year, Brewerton Elementary had two of its own students serving as the faces for fighting heart disease: Chloe Burian, a UPK student, and Matthew Blenn, a kindergarten student.
Working together, the school was able to raise $6,045, the greatest amount that has been raised in the last six years! The student with the highest contributions was Gabriel Varrenti, a fourth grader, who raised $525.
“Thank you to everyone who contributed to this worthy cause and for helping make this event such a success,” said Brewerton Elementary Principal Erin Phillips.
