Cardiovascular disease is the nation’s number one killer. Almost one-third of our children are overweight or obese – it’s time to reverse that trend. Join us in the School Partnership Program and help us fight heart disease and stroke by signing up to partner with the American Heart Association at your school in Arkansas, Colorado, Oklahoma, New Mexico, Texas and Wyoming. Work with a local representative to customize an event that will educate your community and help raise funds to fight heart disease and stroke.
- Anyone on campus that helps promote the event can earn six Professional Development Hours. (Be sure to follow the correct procedures to qualify.)
- One percent of all Jump Rope For Heart/Hoops For Heart donations go to AAPHERD to support PE professional development.
- Last year 2,352 schools received a US Games gift certificate for raising $1,500 or more in the fight against heart disease and stroke for FREE PE and Technology equipment in Arkansas, Colorado, Oklahoma, New Mexico, Texas and Wyoming.
