MCBC Jump Rope for Heart

Saturday, July 9, 2016 at 10:00am to at 11:30am
Location: 
Watona Park

JR4H

Madelia Community Based Collaborative (MCBC) is thrilled to be supporting the American Heart Association, teaching students and families how to take care of their hearts through the Jump Rope For Heart program. Kids from kindergarten through sixth grade can participate in this Jump Rope For Heart event on Saturday, July 9th from 10 to 11 a.m. in Watona Park during Madelia Park Days. What does your child get out of participating?

1. YOUR CHILD learns about the importance of the heart— how it works, and how to take care of it: With the educational programs from the American Heart Association, our students learn how the heart works, how exercise affects their hearts and how to stay FIT FOR LIFE! Approximately 80 percent of the funds raised go directly to the mission, funding extensive research efforts, heart education and programs to help us all live healthier lives. 

2. YOUR CHILD will participate in jump rope games, participate in interactive educational games focused on nutrition and rethink your drink, and have the opportunity to sample fruit and vegetable infused water. 

3. YOUR CHILD reaches out to friends and family: The safe online tool makes it easy for your child to set up a web page and send emails to support their fundraising efforts and to share life-saving information. Visit:

www.heart.org/jump to get started today!

Help your child sign up online by selecting your state, city, and then Madelia Elementary or Saint Mary's School. Your child can fundraise online or collect money in an envelope to turn in at the event. Please note you do not need to sign up to come to the Jump Rope For Heart event and kids will get a prize (while supplies last) with or without raising funds. The event is open to youth grades K-6. 

4. YOUR CHILD feels good for making a difference in people’s lives! Funds raised support the heart association’s research and education initiatives that save lives in our community. Heart disease is the No. 1 killer of all Americans and more people die of heart disease than all forms of cancer combined. The American Heart Association is second only to the U.S. government in funding research in heart disease and stroke. Fifty percent of the proceeds will go to the American Heart Association and 50% will go to those impacted by the Madelia Fire.


We hope you are as excited as we are to support our students in this important experience. If you have any questions or would like to volunteer, please let Kelly Krumwiede know at kelly.krumwiede@mnsu.edu or 507-380-8628.
