Rachel Lint, physical education teacher at Ringgold Elementary School North (RESN), always makes giving joyful!
|Jump Rope Heart Fundraiser|
Every year she creatively gets the kids involved for the American Heart Association’s Jump Rope for Heart fundraiser. But it’s not just jump rope! Students made their hearts healthy not just by jumping rope, but also by playing Chinese jump rope, completing obstacles, balancing, juggling, crawling, and doing so many other activities.
Lint organized the entire gym to be squared off as a life-sized board game. Large round dots created the board. Under each dot was an activity. Every student carried a stuffed animal as a game piece, so each student knew where to return on the board at the next roll of the dice. The number of spaces for the next move was determined by one large dice!
The school raised an amazing $6,000 this year for the American Heart Association, and of course, had a little fun doing it.
