Lonedell School fifth-graders MaKayla Johnson, left, and Bailey Leuthauser hold a handle of each other’s jump ropes as they participate in an American Heart Association fund-raiser late last week. The 35th annual “Jump Rope for Heart” event took place across the country, and youngsters got sponsors to donate funds to the cause as part of the activity. The children earned prizes for their efforts. Lonedell has been a participant for several years.
