Raise vital funds, get your school skipping and have fun.

Jump Rope for Heart helps your students get the exercise they need and raise money to save Aussie hearts.

Being active is one of the most important ways that children can improve their health and wellbeing. Did you know two in three primary school students don’t meet the Australian Physical Activity Guidelines?

That’s where Jump Rope for Heart can help your school.

The program can help primary schools meet the mandatory weekly requirements for student participation in sport and physical activity, and encourages students to build a positive attitude towards exercise, healthy eating and heart health.

How to get involved

Jump Rope for Heart can fit anywhere in your school’s schedule. A typical program is run for 5-8 weeks and includes a school-wide launch and weekly skipping sessions. Students log their skipping progress and seek donations on our secure, online portal. Skipping at home accelerates their skill development, which they can show off at the Jump Off Day celebration.
