Atkinson students jumped all over heart disease and stroke last month during Jump Rope for Heart with 89 students participating.
The school raised $2,500.53 for the American Heart Association. Donations help fund research to fight heart disease and stroke, and also support the American Heart Association's public and professional education programs.
"This year's event was a success," said Katy Glass, Atkinson's Jump Rope for Heart coordinator. "We are very proud of all our students who participated. They worked hard to raise donations and were rewarded with a celebration event."
