Our 15th Year of Jump Rope for Heart!

Dear Parent/Guardian:

 Bakersfield PS is pleased to be holding a Heart & Stroke Jump Rope for Heart event on May 10th. 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. Let’s be part of it!

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 Chapters/Indigo, Canadian Tire, Mastermind Toys and Amazon.ca!

Please visit jumpropeforheart.ca and start fundraising today!

Each student will be bringing home a pledge envelope if you prefer to collect 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,

Bakersfield Staff

* Skipping ropes will be delivered to your school after your Jump event.
