Jump Rope for Heart / Hoops for Heart

Dear Jump Rope for Heart and Hoops for Heart Coordinators:

Sincere thanks for completing a Jump Rope for Heart or Hoops for Heart event!

We encourage you to coordinate a Jump Rope for Heart or Hoops for Heart event for your students in 2017–2018.

Our goal is to have 20 new events in CT this year. Encourage your colleagues who may be interested in conducting an event to contact an AHA Representative at 1-888-294-0996.

You can make a difference in the lives of many as the funds generated in these events have sponsored many research projects that have improved the lives of victims of heart disease and stroke.

Best wishes for a successful, heart healthy event this year!
