Indiana has Heart

Everything you need to know about Jump Rope for Heart / Hoops for Heart
Jump Rope For Heart (JRFH) and Hoops For Heart (HFH) are education and fundraising programs jointly sponsored by Indiana AHPERD and the American Heart Association.
We 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. JRFH/HFH is a great opportunity to raise funds for life saving research and empower students to take charge of their health and physical wellbeing.

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.
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.
