Jump Rope for Heart
Fort Saskatchewan Elementary is pleased to be holding a Heart & Stroke Jump Rope for Heart event from February 5-16. All money raised will support Heart & Stroke in their mission to promote children’s health and fund vital heart and stroke research. We are having our Kick-off Assembly on February 5 at 10:30 a.m. Please join us if you can.
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 Heart & Stroke is striving to get 1 million kids jumping in close to 4,000 schools across Canada. Let’s be part of it!
We have already reached our School fundraising goal of $1000.00. Mrs. Sorochan and Mr. Gerwing will "Kiss a Pig" on March 5!
Now, FSE let's go for $4000.00
On Monday, February 5 your child came home with a pledge sheet. 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*, and gift cards from Indigo, Toys “R” Us, and Canadian Tire!
How to get started
- Visit JumpRopeForHeart.ca and Register for JUMP
- Set up your personal fundraising page
- Send donation request emails to friends, family and colleagues
Thank you in advance for your support. Feel free to drop by any time between February 5 - 15 to see the kids skipping in in the gym.
