Jump­ing with heart

The Telegram (St. John’s) - - LOCAL -

Stu­dents at Top­sail El­e­men­tary School jump rope Wed­nes­day af­ter­noon as part of the of­fi­cial launch of the Heart and Stroke Foun­da­tion of New­found­land and Labrador’s Jump Rope for Heart pro­gram for the 2017-2018 school year. The stu­dents — Ella Ware­ham, Nyah Smith, Ava Mur­phy, Quinn Mar­shall, Kameron Delacey and Carter Pen­ney — were among hun­dreds who gath­ered at the gym to par­tic­i­pate in the event with foun­da­tion rep­re­sen­ta­tives. In its 35th year, the pro­gram — spon­sored by NL Hy­dro — fo­cuses on teach­ing chil­dren about heart health by en­cour­ag­ing them to eat healthy and par­tic­i­pate in daily phys­i­cal ac­tiv­ity, like skip­ping rope. Top­sail El­e­men­tary was the top fundraiser of last year’s Jump Rope for Heart pro­gram.
