Despite the heat in August and the cold, wind and rain of November, four area young women have jumped rope.

Twice a week since the summer, Center Grove High School junior Mallory Burnett and three of her jump-rope teammates have circled the parking lot outside their practice gym for at least an hour. They are preparing for Nov. 28, when they’ll jump the entire length of the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade.

Burnett, 16, and the three other members of the Indy Air Bears team will jump-rope along the 2.5-mile parade route with 200 other jumpers from all over the country.
