Lower Schoolers Jump Rope for Heart

This winter, the entire Beasley School gathered once again for the annual Jump Rope for Heart—a community service project held in conjunction with the American Heart Association. This year, the Lower School collectively raised more than $9,000 for the organization! In addition to raising funds, the program aims to elevate students’ awareness about how their hearts work and the best way to take care of them. During the event, students participated in jump rope activities, walking and running the track, basketball, hula hooping and an obstacle course.

Lower School P.E. teacher Sue Orlando kicked off the event, sharing a story about how 1st grader Reagan Saur ’29 made a lasting impression when she went door to door to raise money for the American Heart Association. While speaking with neighbors and friends about Jump Rope for Heart, Reagan found that many of them had suffered or knew someone who suffered from various heart conditions. They commended her for her participation in such an important cause.
