This is the image for the news article titled BISD Students Continue the Tradition of Taking the Heart Healthy ChallengeBISD students once again participated in their annual Jump Rope for Heart events on their campuses.

BISD elementary campuses partnered with the American Heart Association to help save lives and raise over $35,000 for the life saving organization.

Heart Healthy Challenge activities weren’t limited to jumping rope only. 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 and build relationships between high school athletes and future high schoolers.

In the more than 35 year history of Jump Rope For Heart, 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 part of this lasting legacy of hope and health!
