Jump Rope for Heart



Students will have the opportunity to raise funds for the American Heart Association to fund research and educational materials to lower the risks of America's #1 and #5 killers: heart disease and stroke. You're the cure and together, we CAN SAVE LIVES!

American Heart Association Mission: to build healthier lives free from cardiovascular disease and stroke

MISSION FOCUSED: When your child understands the reason for participating in Jump Rope/Hoops For Heart (such as a lost loved one or a family history of heart disease), it helps them to connect the dots to a healthier life and might even inspire a few other family members to live heart healthy too!

ZOO CREW! GET WILD ABOUT HEART HEALTH! Students who raise life-saving funds for the American Heart Association will earn members of the Zoo Crew! Each member shares a heart healthy message with our students and reminds them that they are HEART HEROES!!! Collect all six! See envelope for details.
