OAKWOOD, Ohio (WDTN) – Local high school teams are going red this month in support of heart health.

The first game was Tuesday night as Franklin visited Oakwood.

Heart health has special meaning for Oakwood students. A recent graduate died from an undiagnosed heart condition.

That is why local schools and the Kettering Health Network are working together to bring more awareness.

“We’re bringing more awareness in the community and trying to do our part to make sure everyone knows your heart is what takes care of you so you ust take care of it,” said Corey Whipple, Oakwood High School athletic trainer.

Health officials will be at various high school basketball games through the end of February. Be sure to look for the special red basketballs promoting heart health.
