Kilmer Elementary School, Buffalo Grove, students participated in the school's 21st annual Jump Rope for Heart event on Wednesday, April 16. Richard Ryan, Kilmer physical education teacher, coordinates the event each year and works with all students to teach the importance of making a commitment and the value of wellness.

Students from kindergarten through fifth grade will collect donations from family members and friends to support one hour of jumping. Last year, Kilmer students raised $4,380.89 for the American Heart Association and the goal this year is $4,000.

"Jump Rope for Heart is a great event to promote active lifestyles, healthy choices, and actions that make a difference," said Kilmer Principal Diana O'Donnell. "Our students were energized for this event and for the opportunity to give back to the American Heart Association."

To support students in making healthy snack choices, ALDI donated clementines, bananas, and water during the event. Students rotated to a station sponsored by American Heart Association and ALDI to learn about being heart-healthy and making smart food choices.
