Salem Lutheran students raise money for Heart Association

Students at Salem Lutheran School in Affton recently raised an impressive $900 for the American Heart Association during their annual Jump Rope/Hoops for Heart event. The school’s younger students cycled through eight different stations, which included the limbo, hurdles, an obstacle course, a mini-trampoline, jumping rope, a spin jumper and long-rope jumping. Older students competed in individual, long and double-dutch jump rope competitions, as well as obstacle course and basketball competitions. ‘Everyone participated to help remind students of the importance of exercise for a healthy heart, and to show them that exercise can be fun,’ Diane Carney, Salem’s physical education teacher, stated in a news elease.
