Jump Rope for Heart
Posted on February 13th, 2017
Caroline School is pleased to be holding a Heart and Stroke Foundation Jump Rope for Heart event on March 9 from 3:30 -5:00 in the gym. All money raised will support the Heart and Stroke Foundation in their mission to promote children’s health and fund vital heart and stroke research.
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. This year marks Jump Rope for Heart’s 35th Anniversary and the Heart and Stroke Foundation is striving to get 1 million kids Jumping in close to 4,000 schools across Canada. Let’s be part of it!
We need your help to reach our School fundraising goal of $5,000.
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 receive their first online donation (of any amount), they will receive a $5 kick-start and a free skipping rope* from the Heart & Stroke Foundation!
Please visit JumpRopeForHeart.ca and start fundraising today!
Each student will be bringing home a pledge envelope to collect donations after their permission form is received. Please ensure that their pledge envelope is returned on Thursday, March 9, 2017, the day of the event.
Thank you in advance for your support,
M. Godwin, C. Tarnasky
