KALIDA — The Kalida Project Lead the Way Biomedical Innovations class raised more than $10,000 for congenital heart disease as part of its “We’ve Got Heart!” event during the Fort Jennings vs. Kalida boys’ basketball game.
Awareness and educational components of the event included a wall of honor and poster and slide presentations. Five students who live with the disease — three from Fort Jennings and two from Kalida — were recognized as the event’s guests of honor. Fundraising events included T-shirt sales, general donations and ticket sales for raffle baskets and a chance to win a Big Green Egg Grill.
Funds were donated to Nationwide Children’s Hospital for Congenital Heart Disease research during a check presentation ceremony on Monday, Feb. 26.
