Jump Rope for Heart encourages kids to get active by skipping rope while they collect pledges for heart disease and stroke research. They also learn the importance of living a healthy lifestyle and giving back to their community. All money raised will support Heart & Stroke in their mission to promote children’s health and fund vital heart and stroke research.
Please help support your child’s fundraising efforts by registering them online at jumpropeforheart.ca and send out donation request emails to friends, family and colleagues. Online fundraising is the quickest way to reach all of your contacts, and online donors receive an automatic tax receipt. Plus, when students raise money online, they can earn bonus prizes including a skipping rope, gift cards and other healthy heart items!
On Thursday, February 27th, all classes will come to the Gym during their assigned time slot and participate in a variety of fun, jumping and skipping based stations. Please encourage your child to wear RED on this day. Please ensure that all pledge envelopes are returned on this final Jump Event Day to help support the Heart & Stroke Foundation.
