Jump Rope for Heart

 

Each February we participate in Jump Rope for Heart.  For one week, during regular PE class times, each student will learn about being heart healthy and have time to practice his/her jump roping skills.

Jump Rope for heart at Zaharis will take place February 12th-16th, 2016

All students will participate during their regular PE times.  If families choose to, they may fund raise for the American Heart Association.  Students will be receiving packets the week prior to our event and parents are welcome to create a an online fundraising page at http://heart.org/jump

The American Heart Association's goal is to improve the cardiovascular health of Americans.  They will challenge our kids to start living a healthy lifestyle now to prevent problems later; and give them an opportunity to participate in a service learning project that funds the fight against heart diseases and stroke - #1 and #5 cause of death in our country.

Thanks to everyone who has supported this event in past years!
