Bradley Hills Elementary School
is participating in a very special community service program to raise funds for
the American Heart Association. We’re joining in the fight against our nation’s
No. 1 and No. 3 killers — cardiovascular disease and stroke.
On February 14, 2017, our school will again hold a fundraiser known as
Jump Rope for Heart. These events are held nationwide and help students learn
about the benefits of regular physical activity and heart health, while they
raise funds to support vital research and educational programs.
The money we raise will help
people in our community learn how to avoid heart disease and stroke, while living
longer, healthier lives. The physical education (P.E.) program will also qualify
for gift certificates, which we use to order P.E. and recess equipment. Students
will also receive thank-you gifts based on the amount they collect. Collecting
funds is optional.
Family and friends are welcome
to support your child’s participation by making contributions. Students should not go door-to-door or ask
strangers for donations. Supporters can
donate online at www.heart.org/jump. You can help your child register and
create his/her own web page with the tools provided online. Your child can
include a message about why he or she is participating in Jump Rope for Heart. Please see your child’s participant’s
sponsor form for additional details.
Donations can only be made online. Please feel free to print your online
donation forms for your records only. Mr. Ski will be able to print and see all
donations collected for Bradley Hills Elementary School.
Jump Rope for Heart is a fun event
that helps our children understand the importance of community service and
physical activity. The money contributed will fund research that will save more
lives each year. Our efforts will truly make a difference!
