Shore Road’s student council raised $901 for the Robbie Levine Foundation during a Valentine’s Day sale.
The goal of the Robbie Levine Foundation is to increase awareness of the importance and need for automated external defibrillators at schools and during youth sporting events. The foundation was created to honor the memory of Robbie Levine, who died of cardiac arrest during little league practice. An AED could have saved Robbie’s life, if available at the time of his death in 2005.
On March 11, mother Jill Levine visited the student council members and collected the money raised for the foundation. Ms. Levine explained the foundation’s goals and thanked the students for their generous donation, which will buy an AED for a North Shore sports team.
