Parker Jump Rope for Heart Event a Success
Parkers School’s annual Jump Rope for Heart event far surpassed its fundraising goal of $5,000. Students collecting funds from family, friends, and various sponsors raised a grand total of $8,590 for the event held on Feb. 26.
Eleventh grade students assisted in facilitating the event for the younger students who worked their way through a variety of jumping stations. The stations included solo jump roping, partner jumping, parachute, group jumping, and team races.
Money raised during the event will be donated to the American Heart Association to be used to help children who struggle with heart issues. The event also provided the opportunity to teach participants how to keep their hearts healthy through exercise and good nutrition.
