Fundraise in your school or youth group
Jump Rope For Heart is our exciting skipping event that can be held at any time of year, at your school or youth group.
Free skipping ropes and resources
Jump Rope For Heart is simple and easy to organise. Sign up for free, and we provide you with all the lesson plans and teaching resources you’ll need to prepare for the event, including skipping ropes, activity cards and a skills DVD.
And not only does the event raise money towards our fight against heart disease, but your school or youth group gets to keep up to 20% of the offline money raised to go towards new equipment or resources of your choice.
You can also download and print off registration forms to post back to us. Download a schools leaflet and registration form or a youth group leaflet and registration form.
We’re offering schools across the UK the chance to win a once-in-a-lifetime workshop with a BHF-funded researcher to inspire pupils to learn about how their hearts work.
The competition is open to all primary and secondary schools and is simple to enter. All schools need to do is sign up to Jump Rope for Heart before midnight on Tuesday 28 February 2017. Read our Terms and Conditions for more information on taking part.

How your fundraising helps
Before the British Heart Foundation, only one in five babies with heart problems survived more than a year - but our life saving heart research has changed this.
Now, four in five babies born with heart problems get the chance to go to school.
We couldn't do this without support from schools like yours, but we still need your help, so why not get your school to fundraise for the BHF this year? We have two fantastic ways for your children to get involved!
The funds raised will be in aid of the British Heart Foundation’s Fight for Every Heartbeat. At least 80% of your fundraising total must be donated to BHF.
You may elect to retain 20% of your total funds raised, however, this amount must be taken from any offline donations as 100% of funds raised online via JustGiving will be donated directly to the BHF.
Pay in by post
Make your cheque out to the British Heart Foundation and use the return envelope in your fundraising pack to send it back to us. If you don't have this then simply use the address below. Remember - don't send cash in the post.
