Koraes Elementary School students, affiliated with SS, Constantine and Helen Greek Orthodox Church in Palos Hills, participated in the Jump Rope for Heart campaign sponsored by the American Heart Association.
“Our students had fun learning jump rope skills, how their heart works, how to stay healthy and how to make a difference in the lives of others,” officials said.
The money raised by the Koraes student body will help children with special hearts.
