Blue Point Elementary students leaped to new heights and had a record-breaking performance during this year’s Jump Rope for Heart school fundraiser for the American Heart Association. With more than 100 students participating in the event, the building was able to raise an astonishing $6,330.
     
During the monthlong initiative, the students worked to not only raise personal fitness levels, but also awareness of the importance of maintaining one’s health. During their physical education classes, the students discovered new and fun ways to jump rope and how everyday decisions can affect their health. They were encouraged to share their newfound knowledge at home with friends and family.
      
The Jump Rope for Heart fundraiser is sponsored by the American Heart Association and has been around for 35 years.
