Warren-Walker Students Jump for a Fundraiser

Warren-Walker School in the past has been ranked 6th in the region of Western States, and 12th in the nation amongst schools earning funds for the American Heart Association through their Jump Rope for Heart fund raiser. On February 15, at 2:15 p.m., Warren-Walker School, located at 4605 Point Loma Avenue finalized this year’s Jump Rope for Heart campaign with a jumping contest.

These events engage elementary and middle school students with jumping rope or playing basketball while empowering them to improve their own health and help other kids with heart-health issues. And both programs are great ways to satisfy the physical education standards as determined by NASPE (National Association for Sport and Physical Education) and AAHE (American Association for Health Education).
