“By including physical activity into their daily routines, kids can significantly reduce the onset and burden of heart disease,” says Shelley Webber of the American Heart Association. “By raising money through Jump Rope for Heart, we are preventing heart disease and obesity for the next generation of Americans. Kids are literally jumping into a heart healthier life while becoming passionate about raising money for other kids with sick hearts.”
