Ready to go from regular kid to Heart Hero?
Sitting less and being active for 60 minutes or more each day has plenty of health benefits for primary-aged children. Research suggests that active children are more likely to become active and healthy adults, with a lower risk of developing preventable diseases, including heart disease, stroke and some cancers.

See what parents are saying
“Iris and I could not be more proud of Abi! We always knew she was a little champion, but to be putting in this much effort and raising so much money for the Heart Foundation in her first year at school is fantastic. Iris has also been working hard behind the scenes to support Abi’s skipping and fundraising efforts. It means a lot to our family, especially my mum.”
- Mark P, Father of Jump Rope Heart Hero Abi
“They have such a personal connection to heart disease and really enjoy skipping,” she said. “They also understand how important it is to raise funds for research into conditions like hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM).”
- Melissa W, Mother of Jump Rope Heart Heroes Jacob and Byron
“Seeing my child’s excitement and determination to learn something new is one of the best parts of Jump Rope for Heart. Skipping is such a fabulous exercise for everyone, it brought all the kids together and all the mums loved it too!”
- Danielle R, Mother of Jump Rope Heart Hero Emily
