Today in gym class we are doing Jump Rope for Heart. It is a fundraiser for (guess who) the American Heart Association.
Besides jumping rope, we do hurdles and stuff. We did this last year and it was A LOT of fun! My favorite thing about it is that it raises money for people like my Great Uncle Dan with bad hearts. We were really worried about him. In fact, we had our family Christmas party at the hospital when I was 9 because he was in such bad shape. But then he got a heart transplant, and he is much better now.
I am glad the heart association does research on heart problems. If you would like to donate to my page, click on this link.
