Jump Rope for Heart – Friday, May 13th

Howard PS is pleased to be holding a Heart and Stroke Foundation Jump Rope For Heart event on Friday, May 13th. 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.

Participating schools can receive a portion of proceeds back from the Heart and 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 $6400.

Each student will 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.

Please note that we are encouraging all Parents to consider online fundraising. Online fundraising is the most time efficient way to help support your child’s fundraising goals – it is safe and secure, it saves paper and online donors receive an instant tax receipt!  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. When students receive their first online donation, they will receive a free skipping rope from the Heart & Stroke Foundation (to be deliverd to the school after the event)! If you need assistance, please visit jumpropeforheart.ca and check out our step by step “how-to” resources.

Thank you for making Canada a healthier place to call home, by funding the critical research that tangibly improves the lives of Canadian families, like yours, every day.

Thank you in advance for your support,
Catherine Ringler and Ivana Simanic
