Year 3 Beaconhills College student Peyton Haines has become the highest fundraiser in the country for the Heart Foundation’s ‘Jump Rope for Heart’ campaign, raising a staggering $2000 to help fight heart disease.

Peyton is one of 100 Pakenham Campus Junior School students helping raise money for the cause through a series of skipping activities. So far the students have raised a total of $9500, the third highest amount of any school in Australia.

While Peyton says she has lost track of how many skips she has done, she was proud of all the donations from her generous family and friends.

Jump Rope for Heart raises money for life-saving heart research and education programs. Beaconhills College Junior School students have been enthusiastic supporters of the campaign and will keep skipping until 7 June.
