WHAT: A life-saving and educational community service program

We are thrilled that our school is participating in this very special community service program. When your child participates in Jump Rope For Heart he/she:
· Learns about the importance of the heart – how it works, and how to take care of it: Through classroom exercises and educational information provided by the American Heart Association.
· Helps kids with special hearts: Our safe online tool makes it easy for your child to set-up a web page and send emails to invite friends and family to support their fundraising efforts and to share life-saving information. Another way to give to this important cause is by asking your employer if they have a matching gift program.
· Feels good for making a difference in people’s lives! Funds raised support American Heart Association research and education initiatives that save lives in our community.
Help your child set-up a web page to send to family and friends and share life-saving information and raise donations.
