posted in: Home Page News | 0

One of Dr. George Hall PS’ traditions continues this year: Jump Rope for Heart!


The kick-off assembly for Jump Rope for Heart took place today!  That means Jump Rope for Heart Fundraising is officially underway!  Last year DGH raised over $8000!  That’s a huge accomplishment, Huskies!

Why Jump Rope for Heart?  This charity raises money for Heart and Stroke research.  Hundreds of millions of dollars have been raised to aid in developments to fight one of Canada’s deadliest diseases.  You can check out the Jump Rope for Heart website to learn more about how the charity spends the money that is raised and the achievements that have happened, in part, because of the fundraising raised.  We also like this charity and event because it gets our students physically active!

Key information is listed below.  If you have any questions, please feel free to contact the school.
