On Friday, July 17, the kids from Cheerful Home will be jumping for The United Way.

The Jump for United Way allows the children to explore physical activities while teaching the children the importance of community. Children and parents received information earlier this month explaining the event and prizes for participants including donations from many community members and the surrounding area such as Going Bonkers, Quincy Park District, Scotties Fun Spot, the Magic House in St. Louis and Knights Action Park in Springfield, Illinois. If each child could raise $25, their goal of $3,500, goal would be met.
