The Jump Rope for Heart is a national educational fund raising program that teaches elementary school students the importance of physical activity in order to maintain a healthy lifestyle. The event promotes the value of exercise, as well as the importance of giving back to the community. Money raised at the event goes to support lifesaving heart and stroke research.
