If students jumping rope at Palm Crest Elementary School on Friday appear to have a little extra spring in their feet, it might have been because they were there for a cause. They took to the playground during physical education class, ropes in hand, to participate in Jump Rope for Heart, a national education and fundraising program designed to promote physical activity, heart healthy living and community service. Launched in the late 1970s, Jump Rope for Heart is a collaboration between the American Heart Association and the American Alliance for Health, Physical Education, Recreation and Dance.

Some may look at jump rope and see a game for schoolgirls, but others see it as a sport requiring equal parts dexterity, speed and athleticism. Saturday was a day for the latter. That's when 112 California and Arizona jumpers ages 8 to 38 showed up at La Cañada High School to participate in the USA Jump Rope Region 8 Tournament. They showcased their talents in 12 individual and group events, including freestyle and Double Dutch. In June, regional winners will compete in the U.S. Amateur Jump Rope (USAJR)

The team of 17 young athletes from the greater La Cañada area hopped, skipped and jumped their way around the stage to show the crowd of onlookers that jump rope is more serious a sport than the playground rhymes remembered with the game would suggest.

Thoughts from Dr. Joe by Dr. Joe Puglia It was Saturday morning, 7 a.m. I had just finished a run and thought I would read a few pages of a good book and enjoy a 'spot of tea.' I must have been dreaming! Suddenly, Sabine and Simone emerged fully dressed and excitingly exclaimed, "Daddy, are you coming with us to the Cool Cats Jump Rope Club?" "What's a jump rope club," I asked? "We're going to take jump rope lessons." After a week of ballet, tennis, soccer, choir practice and first communion classes and now this?
