Jump Rope for Heart - Tuesday May 14
Published on May 12, 2019 20:14

Dear Parent/Guardian: 

Saint Mary’s will be holding a Heart & Stroke Jump Rope for Heart event on Tuesday May 14, 2019. All money raised will support Heart & Stroke 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 Heart & Stroke is striving to get 1 million kids jumping in close to 4,000 schools across Canada. 

We need your help to reach our School fundraising goal of $2800. As of May 13,2019 we have fundraised $985 online to date!

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*, and gift cards from Chapters/Indigo, Canadian Tire, Mastermind Toys and! 

Alternatively, each student was provided a home a pledge envelope if you prefer to collect donations in-person (*note that door-to-door canvassing is not permitted by SMCDSB policy). Please ensure that your child's pledge envelope is returned on our school’s Jump Event Day May 14, 2019.


Thank you in advance for your support,
