A Heartfelt Race at Campbell High
by Lynne Ober
Last Saturday, senior Brianna Hardy hosted a memorial walk/ run at Campbell High School in memory of her father, who passed away in 2012. Brianna’s father had a fatal heart complication that left his family devastated by his early death. Brianna turned her sorrow into an opportunity to help others who struggle with heart disease. “As my senior project leaving Campbell High School I wanted to make a difference in my community,” explained Brianna. “I took an event which impacted me this most and turned it into something great. My dad passed away of cardiac complications. It was a tragic event that I wouldn’t want to happen to another family which is why I raised the money to donate to the American Heart Association to promote awareness and educate others on the seriousness of it.”Sophomore and senior projects, required for graduation at Campbell High School, must each take a minimum of 40 hours from inception to completion. The goal of these two semester projects is to help students prepare to be well-rounded individuals. Frequently projects involve the community as Brianna’s did. Throughout his life, Brianna’s father loved sports, but he loved watching his daughters and their friends participate in the sports he enjoyed even more than participating himself. He served as a mentor and coach for many girls in the community, using his favorite piece of advice, “play with your heart.” Through his generosity, he touched the lives of many people in the Litchﬁeld community, creating several memories that will last forever and Brianna wanted to honor that heritage.She organized the memorial walk / run not only to remember him and his love of sports, but also to serve as a fundraising campaign to raise money for the American Heart Association. The event was held on Saturday, April 12 at Campbell High School. In addition to the race / walk entry fee and donations, there were also Race Your Heart Out bracelets available for $5 and T-shirts from the walk/run for $10.It is the hope of the entire Hardy family that whatever you do, play with your heart. There’s really no other way, is there?

There was a long line of rafﬂe items on a table. Each item had a can in front of it, and participants dropped rafﬂe tickets into the prize of their choice. Women’s Club Co-president Jean White was helping people make choices. “All of the money that we raise at this event goes into the scholarships that we give to graduating Campbell High seniors each year. This event is not only fun for the family, but it will help one of our students attend college.”
