Students Jump Rope For Heart Health

On Thursday, March 13 and Friday, March 14, Wellington Elementary School participated in the American Heart Association’s National Jump Rope for Heart Program. The children learned about the importance of the heart, how it works and how to take care of it, while helping raise money for the American Heart Association. Heart disease is the No. 1 killer of all Americans. The donations the children raised went directly to the AHA, funding research efforts, heart education and programs to help people live healthier lives. Shown here is Betty Watson and her kindergarten class with their jump ropes.
