Jump Rope For Heart

Buckingham is holding our annual Heart & Stroke Jump Rope for Heart event starting with our kick-off assembly on Wednesday, February 12th at 1pm. A representative from the Heart and Stroke Foundation will be coming to share some information about this important cause. Parents and families are welcome to attend. On this day each student will be bringing home a pledge envelope if you prefer to collect donations in-person.

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 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 ensure that all pledge envelopes are returned on this final Jump Event Day.
