Fort River Students Raised Almost $6000 for Jump Rope for Heart! Please Read Further for Prize Update

Great job Fort River students! Here is an update from the AHA about prizes: 


Dear Fort River Families,

As you know Fort River Elementary School students participated in the American Heart Association’s Jump Rope for Heart event during the 2015/2016 school year raising an astounding $5,953.92 towards the fight against heart disease and stroke.  This is quite an accomplishment!  Congratulations and Thank You!!! The support of you, your child and Fort River Elementary School means so much to the American Heart Association and your community.  Thank you for supporting our partnership to build healthier lives free from heart disease and stroke.

Each participant has made a difference and has earned their special “thank you” gifts based on funds raised.  Due to unforeseen circumstances the gift order was placed at the end of the school year which did not give us time to deliver and distribute the gifts. The school volunteer felt we should deliver the gifts when the children return in the Fall. We understand how exciting it is for your child to receive the gifts they have earned in a timely fashion and would invite you to call Mary Blake, V.P. Youth Markets, to request that your gifts be mailed directly to your child over the summer.  She can be reached at 508-904-3046 or

Once again thank you for supporting and promoting heart health awareness in your community!  The kids had a great time at the event this past year and I’m really looking forward to working with Fort River Elementary School again this upcoming year!

You’re the Cure!  Together we CAN save lives!
