“Every 43 seconds in this country someone dies from heart disease, stroke or another cardiovascular disease,” says Gamblers Director of Business Jeff Mitchell. “That is unacceptable and by providing funds and a public forum to bring the seriousness and prevention of heart disease to light, the Gamblers hope to play a small role in changing that statistic. Thank you to the students, teachers, sponsors, fans and especially the efforts of Korren Jewitt of the American Heart Association for making this game so special.”
