In honor of American Heart Month, the Bethpage Union Free School District’s Charles Campagne Elementary School participated in the American Heart Association’s annual Jump Rope for Heart Fundraiser on Feb. 15.
According to the association’s website, Jump Rope for Heart assists in the battle of against heart disease and stroke by promoting physical activity, heart-healthy living and community service.
Organized by physical education teacher Betty Bohringer, students exercised during their recess time by participating in various jump rope stations while enjoying popular music. Other activities such as basketball and hula-hooping were also available for students waiting to jump.
The district congratulates Charles Campagne for raising $1,005 for the American Heart Association.
