Jump Rope for Heart
JEFFERSON PARTNERS WITH THE AMERICAN HEART ASSOCIATION
Our school is proud to partner with the American Heart Association to help kids with special hearts!
PROGRAM OVERVIEW PRESENTATION
Unfortunately, heart disease and stroke are the #1 and #4 killers in America today. They account for almost as many deaths as all other causes combined. Did you know… Every day 2500 people in America have a heart attack and 2100 people suffer a stroke. Every year 36,000 children are born with a heart defect. The dollars raised are critical to the development of lifesaving research. Thank you for your Support!!
This presentation provides:
- Heart Healthy Tips
- Program Overview
- How to Earn Lifesaver Ducks, and
- How to Set Up an Online Account
Reminder: Jefferson is NOT participating in the other "thank you gifts" (i.e. prizes) stated on the back of the form envelope, only the ducks which are an automatic part of the American Heart Association birthday celebration and as tradition, the Clippers tickets.
MAKING A DIFFERENCE
We’ve made it really fun and easy for your child and family to raise donations using our cool online tool! You can help your child set-up his/her own Jump Rope For Heart Web page with a photo or video, and email it to friends and family to ask for their support. Donations can be made directly to your child’s Web page. This is a great family activity to do together.
