About Jump Rope for Heart

What is Jump Rope for Heart?

Established in 1983, Jump Rope for Heart is our skipping and fundraising program run in Australian primary schools throughout the year. It encourages kids to have a positive attitude towards exercise, healthy eating and heart health while raising vital funds to fight heart disease.

When is Jump Rope for Heart?

The program is open all year round. Each school decides when, and how long, they want to run the program – from launch to ‘Jump Off Day’ is typically 6 to 8 weeks.

What is a Jump Off Day?

Jump Off Day is the last day of your school’s program and a chance for students to show off their new skipping skills. It’s different for every school so your Jump Rope teacher will be able to give you the specific details.

About the Heart Foundation

Jump Rope for Heart is a Heart Foundation fundraising program. The Heart Foundation supports over 580,000 Australians living with heart disease today, as well as working tirelessly to prevent and manage heart disease for future generations. Our work is purpose-driven, with a focus on stopping Australia’s number one killer: heart disease, which takes 48 lives every day.

We act to make a difference in the fight against heart disease by:

  • Funding high-impact research, supporting emerging and leading heart health researchers
  • Working to improve heart disease prevention, detection, care and support for all Australians
  • Advocating to governments and industry for increased funding and resources for heart health
  • Building community awareness about living a heart-healthy lifestyle. We do this through public health awareness campaigns, accessible information and resources
  • Supporting health professionals in their work to prevent, diagnose, treat and manage heart disease.

Logging your skips

Why should I log skips?

Logging skips on your online fundraising page is a great way to track your child’s achievements and to share their efforts with anyone who visits their page. The more skipping minutes they log, the more badges they can earn! Your child’s skips are automatically added to their school's skipping minutes.

How do I log skips?

Once logged in to your child’s page, you will see menu bar with icons. Click the skipping heart icon called “My Skips”. Then, select the date and enter the minutes you skipped. Once you enter your skips, click 'Save Changes' and your skips will then be added to your page!

Does my child receive anything for taking part?

When will my child receive their prize?
