CHAMPAIGN -- Parkland College is helping students lead healthier lifestyles. The Wellness Center spent Tuesday morning signing up volunteers for its "Jump Rope for Heart" program.

People pledge money, then face off in a contest at the end of the month. The event reminds people staying active is easy.

The contest is April 30 at Parkland. All money raised will go to the American Heart Association.
