Keatsway is pleased to be holding a Heart & Stroke Jump Rope for Heart event on Friday, May 10. All money raised will support Heart & Stroke 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. This year Heart & Stroke is striving to get 1 million kids jumping in close to 4,000 schools across Canada. Let’s be part of it!

Please help support your child’s fundraising efforts by registering them online at and send out donation request emails 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 raise money online they can earn bonus prizes including a skipping rope*, and gift cards from Chapters/Indigo, Canadian Tire, Mastermind Toys and!

Please visit and start fundraising today!

Students may also request a fundraising envelope by returning the permission form that was sent home after our Jump Rope for Heart kick-off assembly. If you no longer have this form, a note in your child’s planner requesting an envelope will also be accepted. Please ensure that all envelopes are returned to school by May 10.

Thank you in advance for your support,

Mme Bentz and Mrs. Sunday
