Jonas Landry, WHAM's Jump Rope for Heart representative from the American Heart Association, visited with WHAM students to kick off our Jump Rope for Heart campaign for 2018.
Last year our Heart Heroes raised over $10,000 for the American Heart Association. These donated funds are vital in order to continue the research into combating heart disease and stroke. Heart disease is the leading cause of death in America, but 80% of the risk factors are preventable.
As part of Jump Rope for Heart your child will choose a heart-healthy message and share lifesaving tips. There is even a parent corner with tips on keeping your children healthy at home.
The collection envelope that your child has brought home is to be returned to school with all donations on March 15th. WHAM is unable to collect and secure donations before this date. A reminder will be sent home as we approach March 15th.
Thank you once again for choosing to be one of WHAM'S Heart Heroes.
