Each year Valwood's Lower School students look forward to participating in the American Heart Association’s Jump Rope for Heart. The students learn how to fight heart disease through exercise and a healthy diet. The students realized their goal of $9,000 this year and donated their American Heart Association thank-you gifts to the children staying at the Ronald
McDonald House. Throughout the 15 years that Valwood has supported this project, the students have raised over $100,000 for the fight against heart disease.
