Jumping for a cause was the theme in Elkins on Saturday, as the 15th Annual Jump Rope for Heart event was held at Midland Elementary School.
It all kicked off around 12:00 in the afternoon. Kids and parents jumped rope as the music played, all to benefit the American Heart Association.
Businesses from around Elkins donated door prizes, from pizza to ice cream. Last year they raised more than $3,000.
This year they raised more than $1,200.
