During American Heart Month, students at West Gates Avenue Elementary School in the Lindenhurst Union Free School District enjoyed a visit from Mark Rothstein who shared his program the World of Jump Roping.
Throughout the interactive exhibition, Rothstein demonstrated various jump-roping techniques and invited students to challenge themselves and jump as well. The energetic presenter also explored the importance of being a leader who makes healthy life choices and the virtue in being honest, respectful, focused and kind.
The visit, his 18th consecutive at West Gates, was in celebration of the school’s Jump Rope for Heart fundraising campaign sponsored by the American Heart Association. The event and campaign were successful as the students and staff of West Gates collectively raised $11,500 for the cause.
