Jump Rope For Heart

Once again, our East Side community did an AWESOME job in an event to help folks with heart issues. Our East Side community and 1st and 2nd graders raised close to $4,000.00 to donate to the American Heart Association. These funds help folks like our own Heart Hero, Brody Beckwith, find new developments in heart related research as well as help patients with the cost of medical care. It is a great cause and a great way for our community to give back and help others. Thank you to Coach Heath and Coach Baer, once again, for running a successful program and campaign! Check out some pictures below.
