Learn about FAST and help save lives

Virtual Jump Rope for Heart is teaching my students about the warning signs of stroke.

It’s called FAST and it could save a life.

  • F for FACE: Is it drooping?
  • A for ARMS: Can you raise both?
  • S for SPEECH: Is it slurred or jumbled?
  • T for TIME: call 9-1-1 right away!

Anyone, at any age, can have a stroke. So, the more people who know about FAST, the more lives we can save.

Please help my students raise money for life-saving research and create a healthier future for kids across Canada.


Thank you!
