'Hoops for Heart' Event Educated SUNY Broome Students on Heart Health Through Basketball

By Fox 40 Staff.
Maintaining a healthy heart at any age is important.

One local school educated their students on just how important.

The American Heart Association's "Hoops for Heart" event made a stop at SUNY Broome Thursday night.

SUNY Broome students, faculty and area residents played basketball while learning the importance that physical activity plays in keeping a healthy heart.

Schools around the county have participated in "Hoops for Heart" for nearly 20 years. This is the first year SUNY Broome held the event.

All of the money raised from the event will benefit the American Heart Association.
