Hurstville Adventist Primary School (Sydney, NSW) students have been jumping for joy—and for a good cause—this past month.

The students have accomplished over 72 hours of jumping for the Jump Rope for Heart fundraiser, which is led by the Heart Foundation. The aim of the fundraiser is to get kids enthusiastic about exercise and healthy eating, guiding them to develop lifelong heart-healthy habits.

Raising over $2700 for their efforts, students were encouraged to keep active and become Heart Heroes through their participation.

The money raised will go towards education and research to prevent and manage heart disease.
