The third, fourth and fifth graders at Humphries Elementary School recently raised funds to support the American Heart Association by showing off their jump roping skills. They raised a total of $100.00 which will be donated to cardiovascular research and education in an effort to help save lives in the community and across the country.

This event was sponsored by Debbie Akbar, physical education teacher at Humphries. “We had fun exercising our heart to enhance our level of physical fitness,” Akbar said. “It was harder than we thought it would be, but it was lots of fun!”
