Jump Rope for Heart
- Maureen Fernandez, Claremont Academy Elementary School
- Community Involvement
This year, Claremont Academy continued eating healthy and staying physically active with the Fuel Up to Play 60 program. We connected our Fuel Up to Play 60 goals with the American Heart Association activity with a Jump-a-thon, entitled "Jump Rope for Heart." Students participated in stations with jump rope activities. They had sponsors who donated to the American Heart Association. They all had a great time and learned how getting their bodies moving was keeping their hearts healthy. During our class time, we discussed reasons why we need physical activity and what benefits we gain from heaving a healthy heart. Claremont was very happy to raise funds for the American Heart Association for research and what we learned about our bodies.
