Jump Rope/Hoops for Heart

Hi Hamilton Families!!

You are doing such an incredible job helping the American Heart Association save lives! Thank you for doing your part to make a difference, because every dollar counts. With one week left until our event, there is still time to spread the word and raise lifesaving donations. Donations are due on June 2nd.

Remember: If you raise just $5, you will earn Rory McFiercely III! AND if you receive a donation online, you will get Mr. Tusker! But wait, it doesn’t stop there, if you raise $85 online you will receive Savanna Bolt!  These are our 3 instant Zoo Crew animals and you’ll get more Thank You Gifts at the end of the event!

Need help raising donations? Here are some quick and easy ideas to try!


  1. ZOO CREW ECARD CHALLENGE – It’s new this year and can be found in your HeadQuarters!  Challenge 10 or more friends to join you and make a donation and you will receive Rory’s Zoo Crew Badge! You can wear this on your lanyard with the rest of the Zoo Crew.


  1. EMAIL – Login to your HeadQuarters and use the email tool to ask friends and family to support you with a donation. And we’ve made it easy for you by providing a pre-written fundraising letter!  Parents could even consider sending an email to their co-workers for a donation.


  1. DOWNLOAD THE MOBILE APP – Ask your parents to download the (free) Jump/Hoops app for iPhone or Android. Ask your Mom and Dad to share your fundraising page on Facebook, Twitter or by text!

Still need to sign up online?  No problem!  Here’s the quick steps to take:


  1. Visit our school’s online page: http://jumphoops2017mwa.kintera.org/hamiltoneschicagoil
  2. Scroll down past the zoo image and click on Join Team.
  3. Create a username and password and then fill out the registration form.
  4. Share your personal fundraising link with friends and family right away.
  5. Download the FREE Mobile app for iPhone or Android by searching for Jump/Hoops and fundraise no matter where you are!

Thank you and keep up the great work!
