AHA and Jump Rope for Heart logos - It takes heart to be a hero

Jump Rope for Heart

2017 Jump Rope for Heart Results! Thanks, everyone!

CCS is participating from Tuesday, January 24 through Thursday, February 16.

Jumping will take place during the students' physical education classes.

Jump Rope for Heart is uniquely woven into the elementary campus physical education curriculum each year. While the focus is on teaching the children how to keep their hearts healthy, the fundraising aspect details are below.

You can send emails, texts and donation requests from your phone. Search “Jump/Hoops” to download the app, and you can help raise money that can fund life-saving research while you are away from your computer!

  • Please return your donations in your child's envelope.
  • Make all checks payable to American Heart Association, and please convert all cash to check.
  • Check with your place of employment to see if they have a matching gift program!

Any questions, please contact MarDee Moon.


Dear Parent/Guardian,

We are thrilled to be supporting the American Heart Association to help teach our students and families how to take care of their hearts through the Jump Rope For Heart and Hoops For Heart program. What does your child get out of participating? Your child learns about the importance of the heart, how it works, and how to take care of it. They learn how exercise affects their hearts and how to stay FIT FOR LIFE!

Approximately 80 percent of the funds raised go directly to the mission, funding extensive research efforts, heart education and programs to help us all live healthier lives. Reach out to friends and family. When your kids talk about their reasons for participating (such as a lost loved one or a family history of heart disease), it helps them connect the dots to a healthier life (and might even inspire a few other family members).

The children who participate feel good about making a difference in people’s lives and learn how to give to the community! Funds raised support the Heart Association’s research and education initiatives that save lives in our community. Heart disease is the No. 1 killer of all Americans, and Congenital Heart Defects affect one in every 100 children.  More people die of heart disease than all forms of cancer combined. The American Heart Association is second only to the U.S. government in funding research in heart disease and stroke.

Additionally, the school earns money for PE equipment so we can keep our kids MOVING! We hope you are as excited as we are to support our students in this important experience.
