April 9 and 10, students at Taylors Falls Elementary School jumped all over heart disease and stroke by participating in Jump Rope For Heart. The students raised more than $5,500 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. In addition, the school earned money to use toward purchasing physical education equipment. All of the students in the picture rasied over $100. Madilyn Campell, Eva Kubicki, and Conner Klemenhagen each raised over $200. “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.
