Jumping for heart health in Rhinebeck
BY HV NEWS STAFF • ORIGINALLY PUBLISHED 4/616
Rhinebeck’s Chancellor Livingston Elementary School Physical Education Program has participated with the American Heart Association (AHA) for the past 16 years through the Jump Rope For Heart (JRFH) event.
The mission of the AHA is to build healthier lives, free of cardiovascular diseases and stroke. JRFH is an exciting fundraising event where kids learn lifetime jump rope skills and raise money for those in need. The Chancellor Livingston Elementary School Physical Education Program prides itself on teaching its students the importance of living a healthy lifestyle and making a difference in the lives of others by being “heart heroes.”
In recent years, the CLS PE program has steadily been increasing its fundraising for the AHA. The goal this year was set at $4,800. However, as of last week, the students have raised more than $13,640. This is over a $9,000 increase from last year’s total donations.
