Students at Three Bridges School participated in a month-long Jump Rope for Heart fundraiser during March and raised over $10,000 for the American Heart Association. The fundraiser was coordinated by the school’s physical education teacher Ed Dubroski and school nurse Stephanie Armstrong.
The school’s Kindergarten through third grade students joined in the fundraiser, which incorporated various jump rope activities. The Jump Rope for Heart kickoff program included former Three Bridges School student Johanna Beam, who dazzled the students with her superior jumping abilities.
The students also learned Double Dutch courtesy of “Jump Rope for Life”, a Double Dutch troop led by Coach Ken Hoff from Ocean Township High School. The high school students spent the day teaching Three Bridges staff and students how to jump and turn ropes while getting a great active workout. Year after year, Three Bridges students and staff show their support for important causes through various fundraisers and activities.
