The 2016 Campaign: Ella's Last Jump Rope for Heart Campaign

 

 

I can’t believe it has been 5 years since my first Jump Rope for Heart. Thanks to all of the people who have supported me, I have raised over $40,000!

This year is my last year of elementary school and I’ve decided this is my last year I will do Jump Rope for Heart. It’s been a great experience and I know it’s helped a lot of people. I hope you will help me with my grand finale and my goal of $5,000.

After this year, I will continue to support the American Heart Association in other ways including being a Heart Ambassador. It will always be an important cause for me because as a volunteer I have met kids with heart conditions and I know your support makes a difference.

How big a difference? 

Five years ago I met MJ when we made a video for Jump Rope for Heart. He was in the video because he was born with a sick heart. Last summer, we ran into each other at swim camp. He was one of the fastest kids there!

When you support Jump Rope for Heart, you are making stories like MJ’s possible. You are helping real kids and their families!

Thank you for helping kids with sick hearts and thank you for helping me honor my little sister, Colby.
