How it Works

Welcome to Virtual Jump Rope for Heart!

The support of teachers and families is why Jump Rope for Heart has been a school tradition in communities across Canada for nearly 40 years.

Though Jump will look different this time, our work to promote kids’ health and movement must continue. It’s important for all of us to be active at home and practice other healthy habits to take care of ourselves and each other.

We are excited to offer Jump to people across Canada in this way and to see how kids across the country get active and raise funds with their classmates to support Heart & Stroke.

The new #VirtualJump experience will let us connect online to support teachers and families doing health education from home.

Our goal is 100,000 kids helping kids by joining #VirtualJump.

Here's how it works:

  1. Join us and register online, either with your school or as a family as part of the “Virtual Jump Team”.
  2. Check your email to learn more with new healthy activities for families from HeartSmart Kids and fundraise if you can.
  3. Celebrate together at our first-ever #VirtualJump Event Day on Friday, June 19. Stay tuned to for more information!
