Teachers’ Corner

Healthy students are better learners. Thanks to you, Jump Rope for Heart has grown to bring heart-healthy fun to nearly 4,000 schools across Canada each year.

Here are just some of the reasons why teachers give JUMP a gold star:

  • It’s easy to run. Comprehensive online tools help you every step of the way. And as online fundraising grows, the less paperwork you’ll have.
  • Online fundraising is the most effective way to make an impact. Our Jump Rope for Heart website is the quickest, safest and simplest way to collect donations for Heart & Stroke. Donors receive an instant tax receipt via email for contributions of any amount. Online fundraising saves time for your school and saves costs for Heart & Stroke. Need instructions? Click here.
  • We provide all the support you need. Your Jump Rope for Heart representative will guide you and provide support materials for your Jump event.
  • Free educational materials. Our HeartSmart™ Teachable Moments include fun activities to teach your students about heart health.
  • Boost school spirit — and have a lot of fun. Use a FUNdraising Challenge to reward students with a memorable experience when they reach their fundraising goal. We’ve got tons of great ideas for you, like Wild Hair Day for Teachers, Pajama Day for students, and more.
  • Our great Give-back program. Earn rewards to stock your classroom with items your school needs, or choose a cheque back for 10% of net funds raised..
