At St. Mary’s Catholic School here in Cheyenne, Jump Rope for Heart begins today! The students will jump rope and learn more about healthy ways to stay active and keep a healthy heart. And yes, I do plan on jumping rope with them! I greatly remember this event when I was in elementary school and enjoyed jumping rope as an entire school and just enjoying the whole event. This event is also a fundraiser for the American Heart Association which helps kids with heart disease. I’m joining millions of others to help save lives with the American Heart Association!
At our school, the students are learning how they can help make a difference by raising lifesaving donations to help kids with heart disease. They are also learning about their own heart, and how to keep it healthy. And we all are getting active!
I’m excited about raising money for the kids – kids with hearts aren’t functioning properly and to help fund new medicines and treatments to be discovered.
St. Mary’s Catholic School has a goal of raising $10,000 for the American Heart Association. If this goal is met, myself, Mr. Lane (the school principal), and Mr. Wordeman (the PE teacher) will be duct taped to the wall and the students will get to throw pies at us as a fun reward for their hard work in raising money and awareness (stay tuned for pictures…). Please join the cause in helping raise money for all those kids with heart disease and to raise awareness and to help our school! God bless you! Thank you!
Your generosity and prayerful support is greatly appreciated!
