DGH School Community, our school has begun its Jump Rope for Heart fundraiser for the HEART AND STROKE FOUNDATION. Ms. McColl organized the great kick-off assembly last week.
Why do we fundraise for the Heart and Stroke Foundation? The money raised for this foundation has led to groud breaking research into high blood pressure and its link to strokes. Your fundraising dollars have helped lead to the discovery of a hormone which helps lower blood pressure – saving many Canadian lives each year!
DGH’s Jump Rope for Heart date is Friday, May 1st.
– JK through to grade 5 students participate in the 1st Block
– grades 6 to 8 students who fundraise will participate in either the 2nd or 3rd Block. Grades 6 to 8 students have to fundraise at least $15 in order to participate!
Envelopes and money are due into the school by Friday, April 24th.
