Jump Rope for Heart is coming
Dear Parent or Guardian,
It’s time for Jump Rope For Heart/Hoops For Heart! Did you know that heart disease is the No. 1 killer of all Americans, 80% of it may be preventable through lifestyle changes? Jump Rope For Heart will teach your child the importance of heart-healthy habits – a foundation for the rest of his/her life. This service-learning program will also share with your child the inspirational stories of children who have been touched by this disease while they raise funds to help kids like them, and save and improve all lives.
Here’s how it works:
• Your child has received his/her fundraising envelope. Start by
setting up a personal fundraising page—easy directions are on
the back of this letter.
• Ask family and friends if they’d like to donate. Not sure what to say?
Your child can use the simple script on the collection envelope.
• Encourage your child to get ready to jump, shoot hoops and
have fun at his or her school event!
As part of Jump Rope For Heart and Hoops For Heart, your child will choose a heart-healthy message and share lifesaving tips. There is even a parent corner with tips on keeping your children healthy at home!
Through Jump Rope For Heart, our school can earn money for PE equipment and your child earns fun prizes that encourage him/her to keep up the good work for heart health.
And that’s something to jump up and down about! There will be more information coming up next week. Stay tuned!
