Jump Rope for Heart

Keister Elementary is participating in the American Heart Association's
Jump Rope For Heart. Students will be learning how the heart works,
how exercise affects their hearts and how to stay FIT FOR LIFE! We will be raising funds to support the heart association’s research and education initiatives that save lives in our community. Approximately 80% of funds raised go directly 
to the mission, funding extensive research efforts, heart education and
programs to help us all live healthier lives. Additionally, the school earns
money for PE equipment so we can keep our kids moving! 

If you would like to donate, the deadline is February 19.
Here is W.H.Keister's team page.
