Jump Rope for Heart – a national education and fundraising event sponsored by the American Heart Association – recently came to Deer Park’s May Moore Primary School to promote physical activity and healthier lifestyle and eating habits. During a week of physical education classes with teacher Craig Mangio, students learned about the importance of maintaining a heart-healthy exercise routine and participated in aerobic activities like jumping rope. Funds raised will support potential lifesaving research on heart and blood vessel disease and stroke. 

“At May Moore, we are joining in the fight against our nation’s No. 1 and No. 3 killers: cardiovascular diseases and stroke,” said Associate Principal Heather Levine. “Our physical education teachers designed this week to help our children learn about the importance of heart-healthy exercise.”
