Nine current and lifetime members of the Kangaroo Kids will be participating with jumpers from across the country in the 95th Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade on November 25 in New York City!
The Parade will feature jumpers representing 25 teams from 21 states throughout the nation. Organized by the Heartbeats Jump Rope Team from Cleveland, Ohio, the group will appear under the acronym J.U.M.P. (Jumpers United for Macy’s Parade)
Starting from Central Park, the athletes will be jumping the entire 2.8 mile course that winds through New York City in front of a huge spectator crowd and millions of viewers of the NBC live telecast of the Parade.
After arriving in at the fabled Herald Square in front of the Macy’s Flagship Store, the group will be featured in a live one-minute segment broadcast on NBC national television with an estimated 50 million viewers.
Broadcast nationally by NBC, this is the official kick-off to the holiday season. Be sure to tune in at 9:00 a.m. (EST) on Thanksgiving Day morning and watch the J.U.M.P. athletes from all across the nation in the Macy’s Parade.
