Why participate in Jump Rope for Heart and collect donations for the American Heart Association (AHA)?
*In 2016, they funded 95 new research awards broadly related to pediatrics or congenital heart defects totally more than $13.5 million. This was part of $163 million funded in all aspects of cardiovascular diseases and stroke.
*American Heart Association advocates for federal and state governments to improve physical education and nutrition wellness in schools.
*AHA provides lifesaving CPR courses for students so they can properly react during emergency situations.
*They have partnered with the NFL to create programs such as NFL PLAY 60 that inspires kids to get the daily recommended 60 minutes of physical activity at school and at home. Stonegate Elementary will be an NFL Play 60 school next year!
*AHA and U.S. Games have partnered to offer schools incentive awards for physical education equipment to help students stay active and healthy at school. The more money we raise to support the American Heart Association, the more certificates we earn from U.S. Games. It's a win-win!
Thank you so much for supporting our school and the American Heart Association. You are making a big difference in the fight against heart disease and stroke.
