Jump Rope for Heart Donations!

My Uncle Grady died of a heart attack on January 18, and with diabetes in the family, the girls decided they wanted to particpate in Jump Rope for Heart through our school team and dedicate their jumping to Uncle Grady.
Please follow the link if you are interested in donating. Both girls have a webpage for donations. Please follow this link and type in their first name and it will come up with a link to their page.
***Heart disease is the No. 1 killer; stoke is the No. 3killer and a leading cause of serious disablity
***Cogenitial cardiovascular defects are the most common cause of infant death from birth defects.
***Cardiovascular disease ranks as the No. 2 cause of death for children under age 15
***Overweight and diabetes are increasing at an alarming rank among our nation's youth.
The girls will accept donations until February 15. They will be jumping February 29th. I will try to get down there and get some pictures of them participating.
Thank you for your consideration to this important cause!
