St. Joseph School has been collaborating with American Heart Society for years to help and support those people who have heart problem. Together, they have an event called Jump Rope for Heart Program where students can participate and learn about the importance of having a healthy heart. They also encouraged the parents to support the cause through some donations. The donation that we have collected were sent to American Heart Association.
Each participants were given book marker with "It Takes a Heart to be a Hero" slogan. On the other side of the book marker, there are photos of kids who have heart ailments telling their story.
