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.

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.
