Almost $4,000 raised by students at Taylors Falls for American Heart Assoc.

During the week of April 11-15, students at Taylors Falls Elementary jumped all over heart disease and stroke by participating in Jump Rope For Heart. The students raised more than $3,950 for the American Heart Association, which funds research, programs and education to fight heart disease and stroke, our nation's No. 1 and No. 3 killers.

"I'm so pleased with the success of this year's event," said Amy Allram, Jump Rope For Heart coordinator. "We all had a lot of fun, and the kids enjoyed learning about the importance of physical activity and how they can play a role in saving lives."

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.
