Three pageant winners visited Nisswa Elementary School in support of the Jump Rope for Heart fundraiser.

Lizzy Thurlow, Miss Central Lakes Outstanding Teen; Serena Schreifels, Miss Brainerd Lakes Outstanding Teen; and Bailey Wachholz, former Miss Minnesota Outstanding Teen, all jumped rope and played games with students during their gym period Thursday, Jan. 17.

Thurlow and Wachholz both attended Nisswa Elementary School. All three teens are now Brainerd High School students.

Thurlow’s platform in pageant competition is Building Healthy Hearts: Heart Disease Awareness. The platform was fitting with the Jump Rope for Heart program, which engages students in jump roping and raises money to help children with heart-health issues.

Physical education teacher Chad Holm reported the school raised more than $3,000 through the program. First-grader Sam Simpson was the top fundraiser, raising $510 for Jump Rope for Heart.
