WPMS exceeds goal in Jump Rope for Heart

Wills Point Middle School entered this year’s Jump Rope for Heart campaign with a goal of raising $3,000 for the American Heart Association. The district more than exceeded that goal, raising $5,250 collectively. Fifth grader Jolie Parker was the highest individual fundraiser, collecting $3,000.

Each year Wills Point Middle School participates in “Jump Rope for Heart”, sponsored by the American Heart Association. This year has been a record year for the middle school campus by surpassing a $3,000 goal and bringing in an astounding $5,250! 

Students that raised $50, earned a Dallas Mavericks ticket. In addition, Jolie will get to be an Anthem Buddy at the Mavericks game on Sunday, March 20th at 3 p.m. Anthem Buddies get to stand in front of the players while the national anthem is sung!

If a student raised $125, they earned two Hurricane Harbor tickets.

This year’s top fund raisers were Jolie Parker, a sixth grader, with a total of $3,000; Hayden Taylor, a fifth grader, with a total of $400; and Jacob Daniell, a 6th grader, with a total of $150!

“I am very proud of all the students that helped the American Heart Association raise funds for heart research”, said Coach Bunn.  When Jolie was asked why she participated in this event, she replied, “I just want to help people with sick hearts.”

“Thank you to everyone that helped this year.” Bunn said.
