The February 8th game between Adena and Unioto boys basketball also features student efforts to battle heart disease
What is normally two rival schools competing against each other will become two uniting for a common cause - fighting heart disease. Unioto and Adena high schools will host a Red Out at their February 8th basketball game.
The Red Out encourages all event attendees to wear red to raise awareness of the nation’s No. 1 killer - heart disease. The schools are selling red t-shirts, prior to and at the game, for $10 each to raise money to fund the fight against this deadly disease. The red out event is being organized by each school’s National Honor Society student group. The NHS students are serving in leadership roles to plan the red out event as part of their service to the community.
This year, local high schools throughout Central Ohio are hosting Red Out events to spread the importance of heart-health awareness while encouraging students to fundraise and recognize the importance of community service. Twenty events are scheduled to take place this school year in the Central Ohio area and these events are goaled to raise $30,000. All funds raised are dedicated to research, community education and advocacy efforts. For more information call 1-800-309-3466 or
