LHS fans, students and community members are encouraged to purchase and wear an American Heart Association “Rock the Beat” shirt to school and to the game in honor of loved ones.
“Rock the Beat” t-shirts are available at the school
The “Red Out” will celebrate the lives of family and friends lost to cardiovascular disease while making a difference by helping to save others.
