Teacher's Get Started

Welcome to Jump Rope for Heart!

Jump is a school event nobody wants to skip. Now celebrating 38 years, Jump has helped schools and teachers inspire almost two generations of Canadians.

4,000 schools. 1 million kids. Be part of it.

Sign up your school today!

Here’s how to get started:

1. Set a goal and pick a spirit booster.

Empower students to set goals and work together to achieve them!

Pick a Spirit Booster It’s easy! Choose what type of goal you want to set:

  • Team Titan - number of fundraisers
  • Goal Getter - total dollars raised

When your schools reaches its goal, it's time for the reward! Would you rather:

  • Get pied in the face
  • Kiss a goat
  • Have a PJ day
  • Have a students vs teachers sports game at lunch
  • Dream up your own reward

Schedule a Planning meeting with a dedicated Heart & Stroke representative in your area who will help you set fundraising goals.

2. Kick-off your event!

Launch Jump Rope for Heart to your students at a Kick-off Assembly! A dedicated Heart & Stroke representative will visit your school, where possible, and inspire your students to get started.
Schedule your Kick-off Assembly 4 weeks before your Event Day.

  • Students will learn about the heart and brain, EASY healthy habits, FAST signs of stroke, and much more!
  • Kids get moving while participating in an interactive activity!
  • Get set up for success with tips on how to fundraise online and offline! We also teach students how to count their Healthy Habit Streak in their Participant Centre.

3. Go online!

Online fundraising makes it easy!

  • Did you know, many kids raise twice as much when they fundraise online? Schools also earn more Give-back points, and teachers save time counting and collecting cash donations and envelopes.
  • Encourage your students to register online and start counting their EASY healthy habit streak!
  • Join your school online and follow along to see how your students are doing.
