Lost Lake Elementary Coach Rico Vigliotta and Coach Mike Henry once again dedicated all of their energies to raise $12,340 and in bringing awareness to the American Heart Association.

"This year, our inspiration was Madison-Grace Deane," said Principal Rhonda Hunt.

"Her brother Tyler who is in 1st grade wrote on his Jump Rope for Heart form that he was jumping for his baby sister."

Coaches Henry and Vigliotta were informed by Tyler's mom that Madison is three and a half months old and is diagnosed with Truncus Arteriosus, a form of Complex Congenital Heart Disease. She has had three stomach surgeries and three heart surgeries and is scheduled for open heart surgery on April 14th. Madison will later require a heart transplant, without it, her life expectancy is 15-30 years.

Deane brought Madison to Jump Rope for Heart on Friday, April 4th to cheer for the students in 1st grade. She had her brothers Tyler, Levi and Oliver jumping rope beside her.

For the last four years in a row, Lost Lake has been #1 in the County in raising funds for the American Heart Association. Lost Lake has raised over $205,000 for the American Heart Association over the past 14 years.

"Thank you to everyone that participate and support this worthy cause," Hunt declared.
