On Friday, McKean Elementary School kicked off their Jump Rope and Hoops for Heart Campaign. Through the first week of February, there will be many fun heart healthy activities for the students to learn the importance of the heart, how it works and how to take care of it.

To kick off, the GMHS basketball players hosted an assembly at McKean where they discussed heart health and how it even can relate to sports by showing a few basketball skills.

Students are encouraged to raise money through the first week of February. The goal is to raise $5000 in fundraising for the American Heart Association. The class who raises the most money will receive a physical activity and “healthy” pizza party along with a special treat from the American Heart Association.
