They cheered again as she did the same to Phys. Ed. teacher Billy Donnelly.
Donnelly and Price were paying off on a promise they made because Franklin Ave. Elementary met their fundraising goal of $5,000 forJump Rope for Heart, a program that teaches children about keeping their heart's healthy while raising money for the American Heart Association.
"It is very important you understand you guys did an amazing job this year," Donnelly told the students. "Last year, we raised just over $2,000 and I put the challenge out to you. You went out and we got people bringing in piggy banks and everything. It means you guys really cared. It’s not about getting the Mohawk. It’s about you guys saving lives. Children that are your age, you went out and you helped save the lives of children that have bad hearts. That’s what this is about. The Mohawk is just extra."
