With pop music blasting and jump ropes in hand, Hampton Bays Elementary School third- and fourth-grade students helped raise $1,600 for the American Heart Association.
 
The students procured the funds through sponsorships from friends and family for the 16th annual Jump-a-thon, held Feb. 13. During the event, the students jump roped for an entire gym period and earned prizes for achieving individual goals.
