Jump Rope for Heart 2010.

Ever thought of holding a Skipping  or Jump Rope get together.  Did you know that there are World and Region skipping competitions?

Well! We are combining a skipping activity that raises funds for the Heart research with an overnight stay.  Not sure whose going to have the most fun though.  The start time is 10 am Thursday July 2010. Originally intended for the Jump Rope to occur with Heart week but time wise this was not going to occur. For now the Jump Rope For Heart is not on the Region Agenda.  How ever the Gipps Guides have involved the Hazelwood and Churchill Guide District.

The finnish time is 12 oo  [noon] then lunch should be served.  Parents and Friends are invited to this activity which will be held at the Hazelwood South Hall.  In case of rain at this time of year the Hall is big enough for participants and spectators.  The Hazelwood South Hall’s  floor is wooden so there is plenty of bounce.

A gold coin donation is expected and will be going to ally lunch costs of feeding the participants and the others.  NOTE :  This money is separate to the overnight stay costs.

Previously the Gipp’s Guides have organised a Bounce-a-thon and various members have also assisted the Youth members with their skipping challenges. Are they up to scratch with the Double Dutch Challenge?  Will you be there to watch, turn the ropes or help with other things? What about just keeping the ropes tidy?

Jump-Rope-For-Heart was suggested as a service to an organisation during 2009.  The Jump-Rope-for-Heart Subcommittee is being organised through the Gipp’s Guides. Other members may join the subcommittee though.
