Katia Corwin raise $280 for Jump rope for heart.

Last month the Cedar Springs school kids were jumping. Really jumping. No, not with the normal excess energy they seem to possess. They participated in the annual Jump Rope for Heart Contest. Sponsored by the American Heart Association, the Physical Education teachers organized the event for the 22nd consecutive year.

A total of 582 students from Cedar View and Red Hawk Elementary as well as the Middle School enjoyed the day of jumping and music.

“These kids did a wonderful job raising donations for the event. They were thinking of others and that is something special,” stated PE teacher Steve Banagis, one of the pioneers of the event.
