Jumping for Good Health

Jumping for Good Health

Over the past year, Cohen Children’s Medical Center (CCMC) and Kohl’s Cares for Kids conducted an educational program with students at Jackson Main Elementary School in Hempstead. The program was a year-long health and wellness initiative to educate students on proper nutrition, the importance of exercise and how to stay fit at home. Teachers worked with a program called “Activity Works,” which urges youngsters to perform 12 minutes a day of exercise---in the classroom. The goal is to have students report what they've learned to their parents and siblings. Students worked so hard to meet their exercise goals over the past year that CCMC and Kohl’s decided to surprise them with a visit and performance from the nationally recognized jump rope team, “Lucie B. Jump N Fun Rocket Ropers.” Afterwards, students joined in the fun.
