JUMP ROPE FOR HEART 2017

February 17, 2017

Our Jump Rope for Heart campaign has kicked off for this year!  Our total school goal is to raise $1200!  We can do it!  We decided to change things up a bit for the top fundraisers for each class…this year the student with the highest dollar amount of donations from each grade will get to attend a special pizza and ice cream party!!!

The students have been enjoying our jump roping days and are learning “heart healthy facts”, as well as “heart fun facts”…

DID YOU KNOW…

-The average man’s heart pumps almost 2,000 gallons of blood EVERY DAY?  That’s how much water some fire departments’ tanker trucks can hold!

-About 90% of Americans age 2 and up eat too much sodium…about the same number of American adults who own a cell phone!

-The blue whale is the animal with the largest heart…it weighs nearly 1,500 pounds!  Talk about having a big heart!

 

We can all have healthy heart by doing the following:

-exercise 60 minutes every day

-add a fruit or vegetable to each meal

-choose water instead of sugary beverages

-say no to tobacco and e-cigarettes

-choose foods low in sodium

The date to turn in the money collected is Friday, February 24th.
