Jump Rope for the Heart 2014



THANK YOU for joining in the fight against heart disease and stroke.  You are making a difference and are helping save lives in your own community and across the country.

Why is partnering with the American Heart Association so important?

  • Heart disease is the nation’s No. 1 killer.
  • Stroke is the third leading cause of death.
  • Childhood obesity has reached epidemic proportions.
  • If current lifestyle trends continue, 75 percent of Americans with be overweight or obese by 2015.

What does the American Heart Association do for kids’ health?

  • About 36,000 children are born with a heart defect each year.
  • Since 2003, we’ve committed more than $44.1 million to research relating to children’s health.
  • We are working on several other fronts to prevent and treat these devastating events.

On March 6, 2014 Damascus Elementary raised $2,266.00 to support the American Heart Association efforts to create healthier lives, free of cardiovascular diseases and stroke.


THANK YOU all for your donations to a great cause.
