FRES Jump Rope for Heart……….

On Wednesday, May 16, 2018 at Fort Rupert Elementary School, 16 students and 2 parents participated this year to fundraise over $1300 for the Heart & Stroke Foundation. The FRES PAC receives a 10 percent donation from the foundation just for participating and it has been a wonderful experience for the kids and parents alike. The best thing is when a student says I am jumping for.... a mom, a dad, a sibling, a grandparent, their hamster, etc. but when they say their self as I need to stay healthy and fit. That is what it is all about. We do things for others but we need to take care of ourselves in order to take care of others. It was sweet and just overwhelming for the parents taking part as their kids are really educating themselves with staying healthy and fit and doing what is right for their families and friends.
