Parker Lower School raises nearly $9,000 for Jump Rope for Heart
A very rainy day could not stop Parker Lower School students from participating in their annual Jump Rope for Heart Event on March 7.
For several weeks prior, students worked to collect funds from family and friend sponsors and raised nearly $9,000, far surpassing their $5,000 goal.
On the day of the event, with Parker 11th-graders on hand to help facilitate, the young students gathered on the school’s large covered lanai to move through various jumping stations as their favorite music boomed in the background. The stations had activities such as solo jump roping, partner jumping, parachute fun, group jumping and team races.
The Jump Rope for Heart event raises money for the American Heart Association to help children with heart problems, and also teaches participants about how to keep their own hearts healthy through exercise and good nutrition.
