The kids at Washington Elementary in Cloquet are sure a jumpy bunch, literally!

Friday was their finale of their efforts in the Kids Heart Challenge, formerly known as Jump Rope for Heart.

All the grades took turns jumping rope, skipping, and hopping around the gym.

They raised over $30,000 for the American Heart Association. And are #2 in the state for funds raised!

It’s pretty special, according to Mrs. Rothamel, their phy-ed teacher, because it’s the 25th anniversary of their Heart Challenge/Jump Rope for Heart.
