Student Council representatives from Lindale and Whitehouse will exchange dollar amounts raised for the American Heart Association at the home football game October 19. Both schools were challenged by Christus Trinity Mother Frances Hospital to collect donations from students over a three week period leading up to the rivalry game.

“We would love for all students to take part in this event,” student council sponsor Dare Kirklin said. “It’s to support a cause that could possibly save lives. Plus we don’t want to be outshined by Whitehouse on our home turf.”

The schools are not competing for a prize because the ultimate purpose of the competition is to raise funds which will go toward fighting heart disease in the United States. The challenge encourages students to give to a worthy cause, and it being a competition gets more students to participate.

“The event raises school spirit,” Student Council President Megan Johnson said. “Both schools want to win, so what better way would there be than to create friendly competition while helping the community?”
