Hoops for Heart

basketball boy 7Hoops For Heart is a national event sponsored by the American Heart Association and the American Alliance for Health, Physical Education, Recreation and Dance. Students have fun playing basketball while becoming empowered to imrpove their health and help other kids with heart health issues.

Hoops For Heart helps students:

  • Develop heart-healthy habits while being physically active
  • Learn basketball skills they can use for the rest of their lives
  • Earn free gift certificates for free school P.E. equipment from U.S. Games

With your support, we can help protect and improve children's heath. Your efforts to educate your students and raise funds for research and outreach are vital to improving kids' lives.

If you host a Hoops for Heart event during the 2017-2018 school year and raise $2,000 (per coordinator), you will receive a 50% discount on your SCAHPERD Professional Membership and a free membership to SHAPE America.
