Thank you for making our Jump Event a success!

~310 Sprucecourt students participated in Heart & Stroke’s Jump Rope for Heart.

Together, we raised $2035 for the foundation.

The funds we raised will support research and education that gives kids across Canada the best start to a healthy and happy life.

Thanks to your generosity, our school has also earned valuable resources through Heart & Stroke’s Give-back program.
