Jump Rope for the Heart 2013


On March 1, students in 3rd and 4th Grade at Damascus Elementary jumped all over heart disease and stroke by participating in Jump Rope For Heart. The students raised $1,948 dollars for the American Heart Association, which funds research, programs and education to fight heart disease and stroke, our nation’s No. 1 and No. 4 killers.  Students worked on jumping rope and learning about the benefits of exercise for lifelong fitness.  Special “Thanks” to all who donated to a great cause.
Jump Rope for Heart is a program that promotes physical activity and heart health through jumping rope. It is co-sponsored by the American Heart Association and the American Alliance for Health, Physical Education, Recreation and Dance.
