The American Heart Association’s Jump Rope for Heart event has become a much-loved tradition at Timber Trail Elementary (TTE), and once again, this past February, students participated in the campaign to raise money and awareness for heart health.
February is American Heart Month, and TTE students learned about heart-healthy habits, such as the importance of staying hydrated and exercising. As part of Jump Rope for Heart, students secured sponsors and raised money for the American Heart Association. Event activities included stations for jumping rope blindfolded and another for jumping rope as a large group all in the name of health and fun.
All participants had their name printed on a red heart on the wall in the cafeteria, and students and staff wore red on February 2 for Heart Health awareness day.
TTE students raised $10,522 for the American Heart Association with this most recent Jump Rope for Heart event. Way to go Timber Wolves!
