Jump Rope for Heart and Hoops for Heart

Jump Rope For Heart and Hoops For Heart are national education and fundraising events sponsored by the American Heart Association and SHAPE America in partnership with the Ohio Association for Health, Physical Education, Recreation and Dance. These events engage elementary and middle school students with jumping rope or playing basketball while empowering them to improve their own health and help other kids with heart-health issues. Both programs are great ways to satisfy the physical education standards as determined by the National Physical Education Standards and National Health Education Standards. In return for coordinating a Jump Rope For Heart or Hoops For Heart fundraiser, OAHPERD will donate a one-year professional membership to coordinators who complete the program. Schools can earn gymnasium equipment for each dollar raised. With your support, we can help protect and improve children's health!

Hold a JRFH/HFH Program at YOUR school!

When you complete a Jump Rope For Heart or Hoops For Heart event, you provide future generations with the knowledge and tools they need to stay heart healthy for life.

Proceeds from Jump Rope For Heart and Hoops For Heart events fund research and life-saving programs across the nation and provide professional development opportunities for physical educators who work to promote healthy lifestyle habits in today's youth.

Better yet, if you raise $2,000 or more through your JRFH/HFH event at your school, you will receive a one-year FREE JUMP membership to SHAPE America! By joining SHAPE America, you become connected to the benefits and tools to support your profession. (And don't forget - you also get an OAHPERD one-year professional membership!)
