On behalf of the Heart Foundation, I am writing to express our thanks to the students, families, friends and staff of John Colet School for participating in the Heart Foundation Jump Rope for Heart program in 2015. In particular, I would like to acknowledge Simona Cipollone, whose efforts in co-ordinating the program greatly contributed to its success.
Critical to the success of Jump Rope for Heart is the passion, motivation and commitment of teaching staff that co-ordinate the program within the school. The commitment of staff just like Simona, has a positive impact not only on the health of the students but also in the heart health of the broader community. Simona has been a true heart health champion and should be commended for the time and dedication spent facilitating the Jump Rope for Heart within your school.
We are most appreciative of the $3,393.35, raised by your school community. Heart disease remains the single leading cause of death in Australia. By supporting the Heart Foundations Jump Rope for Heart, your school community is making a positive contribution to the health of all Australians, raising much needed funds for heart research.
We trust that Jump Rope has contributed to the health of your students by encouraging healthy lifestyle behaviours and showing them the many benefits of participating in regular physical activity.
Once more, thank you for your invaluable support and we look forward to welcoming you back in 2016.Warm Regards,
National Jump Rope for Heart Field Officer
