W.J. Watson Public School is pleased to be holding a Heart and Stroke Foundation Jump Rope For Heart event on Tuesday, May 24, 2016 at 2:00 pm. In case of rain, the event will be held on May 25. 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 $5 000.00.
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. Online fundraising is the quickest way to reach all of your contacts and online donors receive an automatic tax receipt. Plus, when students receive their first online donation, they will receive a free skipping rope from the Heart and Stroke Foundation!
If you need assistance, please visit jumpforheart.ca and check out the step by step “how-to” resources.
Each student has already brought home a pledge envelope to collect cash and cheque donations in person. Please ensure that their pledge envelope is returned to school on Tuesday, May 24, 2016.
Thank you in advance for your support,
Mrs. Lewis and Ms. Spear
