Do not forget, DGH community, that our Jump Rope for Heart Fundraiser is currently on. In order to receive a fundraising envelope, students must return (with a parent’s signature) the fundraising letter that was sent home previously. The fundraising envelope and any money raised must be returned to the school by Friday, May 10th.
Why fundraise? Did you know that every 7 minutes, someone in Canada dies from either a stroke or heart disease? Heart disease is a bigger issue than ever before due to our aging population, our lack of physical activity and poor diets. The money fundraised, in part, goes to fight each of these issues.
