This is the image for the news article titled BISD Elementary Campuses Earn Over $27K in Heart Healthy ChallengesBISD students once again participated in the annual Heart Healthy Challenge event on their campuses. BISD elementary campuses partnered with the American Heart Association to help save lives and raised over $27,480.00!

Heart Healthy Challenge activities were not limited to only jumping rope. Many campuses celebrated with dancing, hula hooping, roller racing, scootering and playing all sorts of games from soccer to basketball. Some campuses had their feeder high school football players come to celebrate with them, which not only gave a broader range of heart-healthy activities, but also helped build relationships between high school athletes and future high schoolers.

In the more than 35-year history of Jump Rope For Heart, now Heart Healthy Challenge,  the American Heart Association has impacted the lives of millions. The American Heart Association has been able to work with health care providers to reduce the number of people dying from heart disease and stroke by 25% and those achievements, in part, are because of the awareness brought about by schools and the lifesaving donations students have raised. BISD schools are proud to be a partner to help save lives.

Thank you to our Physical Education teachers who work tirelessly to teach students about physical health and the joy of helping others.
