Fox 9 News recently aired a story about how Aquila fourth grader Clara Bormann is inspiring other students with her jump roping skills. As the story explains, Clara was born with muscular dystrophy, a condition that can cause progressive weakness and loss of muscle mass throughout the body. But muscular dystrophy isn’t slowing her down. Four years ago, Clara and her friends formed a double dutch team, which involves two jump ropes twirling in opposite directions. The 10-year-old is all in.
