CHICAGO — With Michael Jordan’s statue looking on, volunteers leapt at the chance to support veterans by jumping rope thousands of times Sunday.

During the “Jump for Vets” charity event, around 70 people pushed themselves to do 2,200 jumps, or the equivalent of 100 jumps for every veteran that takes their own life each year. Sponsored by Rags of Honor, the charity event aims to raise around $15,000 to provide medical care for soldiers battling PTSD.
