More than 145 Landing students and staff members participated in this year's effort, which benefits the American Heart Association.

Congratulations went to Max Lasser, who raised a school high of $415. Other top jumpers include:

  • Mialani Martinez: $330

Through the Jump Rope for Heart program, students secure donations and pledge to jump rope for extended periods of time to raise awareness and much-needed monies for the AHA. Landing School Principal Dimitri Kryoneris and his three children, Gabriella, Sophia, and Luciano also participated. Landing physical education teacher Karen Serani coordinated the event. Thanks to all the Landing students and families that participated!
