On Feb. 8, students at Searingtown School jumped rope for a good cause by participating in Jump Rope for Heart. The students raised more than $12,500 for the American Heart Association, which funds research, programs and education to fight heart disease and stroke, the nation’s #1 and #4 killers.
“I’m so pleased with the success of this year’s event,” said Diane Pasatieri, Jump Rope for Heart coordinator. “We had a lot of fun, and the kids enjoyed learning about the importance of physical activity and how they can play a role in saving lives.”
