$12,000 for Jump Rope For Heart, from St. Paul Catholic School Students

(L-R); St. Paul the Apostle Catholic School students, Myla McCormick and Jessa Foley play a little “one on one” basketball as part of the school’s Jump Rope for Heart activities. The school raised $12,000 for this year’s campaign and more than $50,000 over the last four years.

July 2, 2009 - Students at St. Paul the Apostle Catholic School raised more than $12,000 for the Heart and Stroke Foundation during their annual Jump Rope for Heart and Hoops for Heart campaign. The kickoff to this year's campaign included a video from The Heart and Stroke Foundation and a demonstration from the Chelmsford Public School Dragonfire team.

The St. Paul the Apostle Catholic School student body fundraised by taking part in various skipping and basketball events organized by the grade 7 and 8 students. Once again, the students received tremendous support from the families and friends for this fundraising event.

St. Paul would like to thank all the pledge donors in their school communities, which include Coniston, Minnow Lake and Wahnapitae. Over the last four years the St. Paul the Apostle Catholic School community has raised more than $50,000 for the Heart and Stroke Foundation. This is certainly one physical activity that has many benefits. The students stay active and help a great cause.
