On Saturday, January 27, 2018, the Laurel girls’ basketball program will host the 10th Annual “Hoops for Healing Hearts” games to benefit The American Heart Association.
Hoops for Healing Hearts was created to raise money to help save lives and aid in the research of heart disease while remembering and honoring those who have lost their lives to related heart complications and heart disease.
Erin Ertter, the Hoops for Healing Hearts Coordinator, lost her father Dan to heart disease on Father’s Day 2002. Mr. Ertter coached several sports from the youth level through the high school level. His ability to communicate and inspire young student-athletes led Erin to pursue a career in teaching and coaching.
As the head coach at South for nine years, Erin Ertter created and hosted the Hoops for Healing Hearts games at the school.
This season, Laurel head coach Tim McMahon offered to host the event.
This year’s games will feature Laurel Gators against the Western Reserve Academy Pioneers at 1:00 and 2:30 p.m. at Laurel High School, 1 Lyman Circle, Shaker Heights, Ohio 44122.
