For the fourth year the third-graders from Estherville Lincoln Central held their Jump Rope for Heart activities at the Regional Wellness Center during their physical education classes. All students participated in the jumping activities with 40 students electing to collect donations outside of class. A total of $2,198.56 was raised.

Students were awarded prizes and the physical education program received $100. Austin Wedebrand was the top donation collector with $166. Drew Condon, Molly Diekmann, Alyssa Hatland, Dylan Peton, and Gracie Schnell all collected $100 or more.

At the conclusion of the activity all students enjoyed popcorn courtesy of the Grand Theatres and pop. A big thank-you to everyone who helped out the students with donations and in making Jump Rose for Heart a success.
