CCMES students will jump for heart association

Staff reports

The students of C.C. Meneley Elementary School are jumping at the chance to help fight heart disease and stroke – our nation’s No. 1 killer. On May 22, the school will hold its fifth annual Jump Rope For Heart event. Students will jump rope to raise funds for the American Heart Association. These funds help support cardiovascular research and educational programs, such as HeartPower!

Jump Rope For Heart teaches participants about the importance of a healthy lifestyle that includes regular physical activity, proper nutrition and living tobacco-free. The event empowers children as they provide vital community service and discover that they can make a difference. At the same time, students enjoy group dynamics while jumping into the spirit of this fun-filled event.

“Please help our children help other,” said Ellen Lucas, CCMES physical education teacher. “When a students asks you to be a sponsor, support Jump Rope For Heart with whatever you can afford to give, or call your local American Heart Association at 265-3608.”

For more information, contact Lucas at 265-3154.
