Jump Rope For Heart 2018
JUMP ROPE FOR HEART TOTALS:
JRFH 2018 was a big success! Thank you to the many parent volunteers who dedicated their time and energy to make this event happen! The day was filled with laughter, smiles and lots of happy and talented jumpers! A special BIG thanks to Mayda Winiarski and Linda Teets who started planning with me in December! They did a great job assisting me with organizing the event and the Friday distribution of the much loved monsters!! I couldn't do it without these awesome ladies!
This year we had 307 students and staff participate. Together we saved 554 lives by raising $27,744! Thank you for your generosity, kindness and support for such an important cause! After JRFH, the students had a 3 week unit in PE called Heart Adventure. It sure tied in well and taught the kids so much about the circulatory system and the risk factors of heart disease! We all in some way have been affected by heart disease. The money raised will help the AHA fund research and health promotion. At this time, we are unsure of other school's totals but we sure hope this allows us to keep the trophy in our building for another year! The additional prizes have been ordered and should be coming home for your enjoyment in early April! Happy Spring Break to all! Have fun and stay active with your family! And, as always, stay heart healthy everyone!
Thanks again for your support, Jenny Jansen
