The Fort Dale Athletic Club is selling “Hearts for Taylor.”

The paper hearts will raise money for Fort Dale Academy junior Taylor Merry.

Merry, a cheerleader at Fort Dale, was involved in a serious one-vehicle accident Saturday night, in which she suffered extensive injuries that will require multiple surgeries and an extended hospital stay.

The “Hearts for Taylor” will be on sale at Thursday night’s regular-season finale with top-ranked Edgewood Academy. The hearts can be purchased for a minimum donation of $1 and messages to Taylor can be written on them.
