The Heart Foundation’s Jump Rope for Heart program gives schools who raise $2000 or more a chance to train with Perth Glory, Heat or Wildcats players.

Glory’s Josh Risdon remembers the program ” which is celebrating its 30th birthday ” from his school days.

‘It was a pretty cool campaign and everyone had a lot of fun always trying to outdo one another with their tricks and skills,’ he said.

‘Skipping is still an important part of my fitness regime and is a great way to improve cardio-respiratory fitness, coordination and balance as well as muscle tone.’

Schools have until the end of term 3 to enter the competition at www.heartfoundation.org.au/jumpropeforheart.
