|ROYAL VALE HOLDS 13TH ANNUAL JUMP ROPE FOR HEART|
MONTREAL, APRIL 15, 2016 – In what has become an annual tradition, students at Royal Vale School in N.D.G. skipped and jumped to raise money and awareness for the Quebec Heart and Stroke Foundation.
Royal Vale School has raised more than $240,000 since 2003, cementing the school as the top fundraiser in Quebec and amongst the top 10 in Canada.
Encouraging them throughout the day were parent volunteers and various members of the Concordia Stingers, representing a bevy of different sports. Billy Parker, Defensive Back from the Montreal Alouettes was also present to lend a helping hand and cheer on the students.
Organized annually by Physical Education specialist Norman Katz, the event has become one of the most anticipated events on the Royal Vale calendar as it unites the Kindergarten to Grade 11 school for a good cause.
