WL-S Elementary Donates Over $20,000


The West Liberty-Salem Elementary recently raised $20,000, for the second year in a row, for the American Heart Association’s Kids Heart Challenge. This donation has made WL-S one of the top donors in the state of Ohio.

Kids Heart Challenge, formerly Hoops for Hearts, is a program designed to teach students about people with special hearts while raising money for healthy hearts everywhere.

During the Kids Heart Challenge, students are taught the risks of using tobacco, heart conditions, tips for eating healthy, being physically active, and managing stress. They are given tools to make decisions that leave them feeling confident in improving and maintaining their own health, while also helping improve the study and treatment of kids and adults with heart disease.

  • Izzy Semaan
  • Solly Warye
  • Ayden Henson
  • Calvin Cotrell
  • Shiloh Cole
  • Mason Wallace
