News WUES students raise over $1,000 with Jump Rope For Heart About Peoples Defender Written by Peoples Defender December 21, 2017 Leave a comment West Union Elementary students recently raised over $1,000 for the American Heart Association in conjunction with the Jump Rope for Heart campaign. This event helps students across the nation learn jump roping skills, develop healthy habits, learn how their heart works, and raise money to help their peers. A special thanks to Mrs. Sandy McCarty for her assistance with the fundraiser, to all of our students that participated, and to our family and community members that donated. Your contribution will help the AMA save lives. Pictured are the top three fundraisers from WUES: Logan Murphy, Reagan Kersey and Brayden Bayless.
