Cherokee Ridge is holding their Hoops for Heart fundraising event this Friday, March 24th during their activity time.  Our students are helping to raise money for the American Heart Association.  With their donations, the students have the opportunity to earn some small thank you gifts in appreciation for their donations.  We have set a goal of $2500 this year.  The students have collection envelopes and I have also included an online link for quick easy donations.  Thanks you in advance for helping this fantastic cause.

The American Heart Association and YOU-Working for Kids’ Health

The American Heart Association Jump Rope For Heart and Hoops For Heart are national education and fund-raising events sponsored by the American Heart Association and the American Alliance for Health, Physical Education, Recreation and Dance (AAHPERD).  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.  And both programs are great ways to satisfy the physical education standards as determined by NASPE (National Association for Sport and Physical Education) and AAHE (American Association for Health Education).

Dollars raised through Jump Rope For Heart and Hoops For Heart give back to children, communities and schools through American Heart Association programs, including: 

  • Ongoing discovery of new treatments through research
  • Advocating at federal and state levels for physical education and nutrition wellness in schools
  • Training courses for middle and high school students in CPR
