Jump Rope for Heart

W.J. Watson Public School is pleased to be holding a Heart and Stroke Foundation Jump Rope For Heart event on Friday, May 12, 2017 at 2:00 pm.  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.

We need your help to reach W.J. Watson’s fundraising goal of $6 000.

Last year, our school raised $6 065.00, so let’s try and surpass our 2016 challenge!

Students will attend the annual Jump Rope For Heart kick-off assembly on Thursday, April 20 at 2:00 pm.  A representative from the Heart and Stroke Foundation will be on hand to share fundraising ideas, prizes and strategies with students in grades K-8.  Pledge envelopes will be sent home on Thursday with your child.

Our thanks again to our wonderful Watson community for their support over the years.  Every donation can make a real difference.
