Heart Healthy Schools Teach Life Saving Habits

About Jump Rope For Heart and Hoops For Heart

Jump Rope For Heart (JRFH) and Hoops For Heart (HFH) are national education and fundraising programs jointly sponsored by SHAPE America and the American Heart Association. They promote physical education and provide children with knowledge of heart disease and stroke while raising funds for cardiovascular disease research, stroke research, and health education.

Every JRFH or HFH coordinator who conducts an event receives educational materials and lesson plans that focus on heart disease and stroke prevention, such as heart attack and stroke warning signs, the importance of physical activity, and an anti-tobacco message. Beyond the educational materials, teachers also receive jump ropes to use in their classrooms and have the opportunity to earn US GAMES certificates to purchase new physical education equipment for their programs.

You too can make a difference - sign up to hold a JRFH or HFH event in your school, child care center, community center, or anywhere!
