Jump Jam 2019

Jump Jam 2019 | April 20
Description:

 

Jump Jam

Spectrum Health Jump Jam is a no-entry fee jump rope competition for 3 – 5 grade students in the Greater Grand Rapids area.  Spectrum Health has partnered with public and charter school districts in Grand Rapids, Kentwood and Wyoming to offer this opportunity to compete. Each school will designate a coach and times for practice 1-2 hours per week over the course of 8 weeks. The students will have up to 6 categories from which they can choose to compete.

 

Jump Jam has the goal of promoting health and wellness to meet the mission of Spectrum Health, which is to improve the health of the communities we serve.

 

 “Jumping rope for 10 minutes is the cardiovascular capacity equivalent of jogging for 30 minutes. You can burn as many as 1,000 calories per hour; it’s a full-body workout that requires a number of muscles to be engaged, including back, glutes, shoulders, abs, chest and arms, which is why it’s an exercise choice for a number of athletes,” according to ‘Parade’ magazine.”
