RPS holds fifteenth annual Jump rope for the Heart

Fifteen years after the first event, Rockford Public School students have jumped a lot of jumps and raised a lot of money and awareness for the American Heart Association. Saturday, February 27, the gymnasium of the Rockford High School was packed with third, fourth and fifth grade students jumping for this good cause. The event is organized by Tim Farrell, Parkside Elementary physical education teacher.

Kids worked up a sweat on this cold winter day and each participant received a door prize. In addition students competed for medals and bragging rights. Open Jumping for adults was held for parents who wanted to get in on the fun and exercise. The children did a wonderful job with this annual event and displayed great sportsmanship.
