Jump Rope for Heart

Jump Rope for Heart teaches school children how to keep fit and healthy through skipping!

What is Jump Rope for Heart? 

Established in 1983, Jump Rope for Heart is our skipping and fundraising program run in schools throughout the year. It encourages kids to have a positive attitude towards exercise, healthy eating and heart health while raising vital funds to fight heart disease.

When is Jump Rope for Heart?

The program runs all year round. Each school’s teacher typically chooses a term and runs it for 4-6 weeks.

What is a Jump Off day? 

Jump Off Day is the last day of your school’s program and a chance for students to show off their new skipping skills. It’s different for every school so your Jump Rope teacher will be able to give you the specific details.
