Working their heart for others

First through sixth graders were armed and ready with jump ropes on Feb. 14 inside the Independence Elementary gym for the “Jump Rope for Hearts” event.

Groups would jump rope as hard and as fast as they could for about 30-60 seconds before switching groups.

The event was a fundraiser for the American Heart Association and to help teach the students the importance of excercise to keep their heart healthy.
