Jump Rope/Hoops for Heart!

Posted by on in Latest News

February is heart health month! This year Barnard will be participating in Jump Rope and Hoops for Heart.  We will be raising money for the American Heart Association.

We are joining millions of others to help save lives with the American Heart Association!

At our school, we are learning how we can help make a difference by raising lifesaving donations to help kids with heart disease. We're also learning about our own hearts, and how to keep them healthy. And we're getting active! We will hold our hoops event for grades 6-8 from March 20th-24th, and our jump rope event for grades PreK-5 from March 27th-31st.

We're excited about raising money for other kids - kids with hearts that don't exactly work right and to help fund new medicines and treatments to be discovered.

Please help us make a difference! Thank you!
