Jump Rope for Heart – Friday, May 8th

Dear Families,

Howard is pleased to be holding a Heart & Stroke Foundation JUMP Rope For Heart event on Friday, May 8th. All money raised will support the Heart & 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. Participating schools can receive a portion of proceeds back from the Heart & Stroke Foundation to support the purchase of physical education equipment or to assist with other School needs.

We need your help to reach our School fundraising goal of $4000.00. Please help support your child’s fundraising efforts by registering them online at JumpRopeForHeart.ca and sending out donation requests 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, all students who register online will receive a free skipping rope from the Heart & Stroke Foundation!

If you need assistance, please visit jumpropeforheart.ca and check out our online fundraising videos and step by step “how-to” resources.

Each student will also be bringing home a pledge envelope to collect cash and cheque donations in person. Please ensure that their pledge envelope is returned on the day of their school’s Jump Event Day.

Thank-you in advance for your support,
Catherine Ringler
