PRESS RELEASE Students to Jump Away January Snow Days

Press Release

2/6/2014

BURTON, Mich., Feb. 6, 2014—The winter weather has left a lot of students with some extra energy and February is the perfect month to burn it off in recognition of American Heart Month. Students at Burton Glen Charter Academy are gearing up for a Jump Rope for Heart event Feb. 11-13. 

Physical education teacher Stephanie Gomoluch said activities during the month will be focused on keeping the body healthy with exercise and nutritious food. 

“Students naturally love to run around and play games,” said Gomoluch. “We want them to understand why it is so great to get their hearts pumping and to refuel with healthy foods.” 

One way the students will learn about the importance of exercise is through the school’s partnership with the American Heart Association (AHA). Students will collect donations for the amount of time they promise to jump rope.

 “Participating in Jump Rope for Heart is truly a win-win situation because it gives students a great opportunity to move their bodies and it benefits a great cause,” said Gomoluch. 

All of the proceeds will be donated to the American Heart Association to help with its mission of building healthier lives free of cardiovascular diseases and stroke. In 2012, Burton Glen participated in a Red Out day where the students donated one dollar to wear a red shirt for the AHA.

 Burton Glen Charter Academy is a free public charter school serving students in kindergarten through eighth grade.
