Students jump rope their heart out for fellow classmate
On Tuesday, February 20, 2018, Wyoming Indian Elementary School hosted a Jump Rope for Heart event. Approximately 75 students jump roped to raise money for heart disease.
Honored this year was Joaquin Redman, a Wyoming Indian Middle School seventh grade student who underwent open heart surgery last year for a defect he had since birth. This was his second surgery to try to repair his heart. He is doing great, and was very happy to be honored at this event.
Students from Wyoming Indian High School joined in the jump roping fun too. And as you can see, all the students had a blast!
Richi Krasin, WIES PE teacher, and coordinator of the event, looks forward to making next year’s event even bigger in hopes of raising more money for the heart foundation.
