Bainbridge rope jumpers earn big bucks for charity
Bainbridge High School seniors Sarah Sharman and Abigail Harrison raised nearly $3,000 during their recent fundraising jump rope show for “One World, One Rope.”
The event, organized by the BHS students for their senior project graduation requirement, included 16 members of the Bainbridge Island Rope Skippers, along with 10 special guest jumpers from Hot Dog USA in Kirkland and Jumping Eagles from Colorado, performing a variety of jump rope tricks and acrobatics.
Nearly 500 spectators were present.
The BHS students thanked the community for their support and for their generous donations. The money raised will go towards bringing Team Tanzania and Team Kenya to the World Jump Rope Championship and Camp, slated to be held this summer in Orlando, Fla.
“One World, One Rope” promotes healthy living, international friendships and leadership opportunities through jump rope camps and competitions, to young people in Africa.
