Since 1978, Jump Rope for Heart has raised more than $810 million for research and educational programs.  On November 21, 2011, 50 students in 4th, 5th and 6th grades participated in Jump Rope for Heart.  While participating in jump rope activities, the students learned how heart health, nutrition, and physical activity can help prevent heart disease and stroke.  Students were also sponsored by family and friends and raised approximately $2,400 for the American Heart Association.
