In honor of American Heart Month, students of Central Boulevard and Charles Campagne elementary schools in the Bethpage Union Free School District participated in the American Heart Association’s annual Jump Rope for Heart fundraiser.
According to the AHA’s website, Jump Rope for Heart assists in the battle against heart disease and stroke by promoting physical activity, heart healthy living and community service.
Divided into groups during their gym classes, students exercised their heart muscles by jumping rope to popular pop music. They also hula-hooped, played basketball and learned about the importance of living a healthy lifestyle, all while raising money for the community.
Collectively, the two schools raised more than $7,000 to assist in heart disease research.
