WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) -- Students at more than 800 Indiana schools have been participating in the American Heart Association's Kids Heart Challenge.

Fourth graders at Burnett Creek Elementary School practiced their jump rope skills to complete the challenge.

The Kids Heart Challenge focuses on heart health as well as physical and emotional education. Students develop heart-healthy habits while giving back to their community.

Burnett Creek Gym Teacher, Josh Frauhiger, said it's important to keep the heart-healthy habits going outside of gym class.

“We need to do as much activity and exercise as possible,” explained Frauhiger. “When we do that exercise it just grows us as a society and also grows our kids.”
