The students will be raising awareness through American Heart Association Jump Rope For Heart events and raising funds for the association’s research, public health and community education programs to fight the No. 1 killer, heart disease.

During this fiscal year, students in the Middle Tennessee region will raise a projected one million dollars for the American Heart Association.

Since these youth market programs began in 1978, they have raised about $800 million nationally for the association.

27 Montgomery County schools will be taking part in these programs.

In elementary schools, the American Heart Association’s Jump Rope for Heart program teaches kids about healthy hearts and doing good for others at the same time. The program incorporates lessons on heart health and students jump rope as a way to both increase their own physical activity and raise funds to help others’ hearts.
