During the first week of November, students at Curtis Elementary jumped all over heart disease and stroke by participating in Jump Rope for Heart, according to information from Tina Seal, a physical education teacher and Jump Rope for Heart coordinator at the school.

The students raised almost $2,000 for the American Heart Association, which funds research, programs and education to fight heart disease and stroke, the nation’s No. 1 and No. 3 killers, respectively.  Anna White, a third grader was the top collector, raising $200 for this worthy cause.

During physical education class, the students participated in six jumping stations, not just jumping rope; any type of movement makes hearts stronger.  Jump Rope for Heart is co-sponsored by the American Heart Association and the American Alliance for Health, Physical Education, Recreation and Dance.

“I’m so pleased with the success of this year’s event,” Seal says. “With the economy the way it is right now, I am just so proud of our community for all their support in this project.  We all had a lot of fun, and the kids enjoyed learning about the importance of physical activity and how they can play a role in saving lives.  I lost my father to heart disease 12 years ago, and we have several students in our own student body that were born with heart defects.”
