On Friday, January 31, elementary students in Plum City participated in their annual Jump Rope for Heart event.

The annual event teaches students how physical fitness benefits the heart and shows them that volunteering can be a fun and positive experience for the whole community. This year, Plum City students in Kindergarten through fifth grade raised $5,306.

For over 32 years, Jump Rope for Heart raised more than $810 million for the fight against heart disease and stroke. Millions of students have jumped rope and learned about heart health and how nutrition and physical activity can help prevent heart disease and stroke. Jump Rope for Heart is co-sponsored by the American Heart Association and the American Alliance for Health, Physical Education, Recreation and Dance.
