Jumping for heart health at MBE

Wednesday was Jump Rope for the Heart & Stroke Foundation at Mount Begbie School. Kids of all ages, shapes and sizes hula'd hoops and skipped ropes, sometimes with a little assistance from teachers like Catherine Lavelle (left) and Sarah Newton. David F. Rooney photo
The objective, of course, was to raise money and the kids at Mount Begbie Elementary have been pretty good in that department as teacher Linda Dickson noted. Here she shows off the total — $53,109! — raised by the school's children since 1986. Way to go, MBE! David F. Rooney photo
