Jump Rope for the Playground Raises $40,000.00

by Michelle Johnson
March 2, 2012

A terrific day was had by all yesterday at the Jump Rope for the Playground event held at Miller School.

Students in both Miller and Placentino schools participated in the event that brought close to $40,000 in funds to the Miller School Playground Project.

The event was designed to be fun for the students, as they participated activities from jumping rope to dancing the Macarena. Donations were collected by students from family, friends and neighbors over the last month. Prizes will be awarded to students who reached certain levels of donated money, with the number one prize being an iPod touch. The class that raised the most money will be treated to a special bowling field trip.

The event's success would not have been possible with out the support and organization of elementary physical education teachers Todd Kiley and Jason MacDonald.
Local businesses had the opportunity to sponsor the event, which helped the organization reach their goal of $35,000. Sponsors included are:
Long Distance Tire
Natick Dental Partners
Elite Gymnastics
Dancing Arts Center
Holliston Medical
Hopkinton Vision
