Jakob is raising money for Jump Rope for Heart!!

I remember raising money for Jump Rope for Heart as a kid.  Jakob is now doing the same fundraiser and jump roping at school.  

  • Each year nearly four times as many children die from congenital cardiovascular defects as from all forms of childhood cancers combined.
           -  About 36,000 children are born with a heart defect every year.
  • Childhood obesity has reached epidemic proportions and is now regarded as the No. 1 health concern among parents in the U.S., topping drug abuse and smoking.
           -  Today, nearly 1 in 3 American kids and teens are overweight or obese.
Your donation will help protect today’s and future generations of children from the struggles of heart disease and poor health.  With your support the American Heart Association is tackling the issues of congenital heart defects, poor nutrition and lack of physical activity by investing in research, professional and public education, and community service programs.

Thanks for helping save lives with the American Heart Association’s Jump Rope For Heart!
