Jump Rope for Heart

Minto Clifford Public School students raised over $9,000 for the Heart and Stroke Foundation at the school’s Jump Rope for Heart event on May 10. All students participated in the jumping, with intermediate students shooting hoops, playing soccer, or tchukball. “It was a very cold day, but that did not dampen the enthusiasm of the kids,” said teacher Sharon Williams. Officials thanked school council members for providing the students with freezie treats. Outdoor/indoor recess equipment will be purchased with the bonus money, which is given back to the school by Heart and Stroke, school officials note.  Photo by Patrick Raftis
