Friday was not only Valentine’s Day, it was the annual Jump Rope for Heart at St. Francis Solano School for the American Heart Association. Students jumped rope for an hour-and-a-half, raising funds for heart health. It’s been an annual Valentine’s tradition at the school for 13 years, and has raised more than $26,000 for the Heart Association since its inception.
