Three of our officers participated in the Jump Rope for Heart event at the Bath Elementary School in Bath, New Hampshire. The Jump Rope for Heart Event is organized by the American Heart Association. Sergeant Chris Larson, Sergeant Anthony Griffin and Corporal Stephen Krull spent the majority of their day with the students at the Bath Elementary School jump roping in the school gym. Officers paired up with students and took turns jump roping for twenty five minute time intervals to raise awareness for heart disease. Officers also got to visit classrooms with the students, assist them with school work, enjoy a delicious lunch and play on the playground! Grafton County Department of Corrections would like to thank the Bath Elementary School for inviting us to your facility for the day for a great cause!
GCDOC was proud to participate in The Red Dress Campaign this year:
The Red Dress Campaign is an annual fundraiser through the American Heart Association and is also a tool to raise awareness for ending heart disease and stroke in women. For this particular challenge, each shift sergeant was assigned a team and they were tasked with getting as many people on that team to participate through donation. The shift sergeant who got the highest number of participants won the challenge! The reward was a smoothie bar to service that shift sergeant's entire team compliments of the Grafton County Wellness Committee. Shift Sergeant Rachel Harrness positively motivated her team to participate and they ultimately won! In total GCDOC raised over $100 for the campaign.
