As part of the American Heart Association’s Work Out for Heart initiative promoting the benefits of healthy and active lifestyles, first-, second- and third-grade students at Fork Lane Elementary School collectively raised more than $7,000. Following their remarkable efforts, the students participated in a series of workouts, including sitting-and-reaching, hula-hooping, jump roping, performing push-ups and curling dumbbells. The activities, in conjunction with each grade’s fundraising efforts, highlight the school’s promoting of heart health. Fourth- and fifth-graders will also be participating in the activities.
