On Friday January 15, a representative from the American Heart Association will present a kick-off assembly for our annual Jump Rope For Heart event and talk about how the money that is raised goes to support cardiovascular research and education. Heart disease is the nation #1 killer and our children are developing significant health issues that can shorten their life expectancy. The goals for Jump Rope For Heart are to increase the students' knowledge of how their hearts work and the best way to take care of them, honor all those affected in our community who have been affected by heart disease, and to help raise money for the American Heart Association's research.
