HeartPower! Online is the American Heart Association's curriculum-based program for teaching about the heart and how to keep it healthy for a lifetime. Nutrition, physical activity, living tobacco-free, and knowing how the heart works all are vital in maintaining a healthy heart. While there are many valuable resources available when you hold a Hoops For Heart event, the HeartPower! Materials have proved to be timeless and are always in demand.
In addition to the event kit available to all Jump Rope For Heart coordinators, additional resources can be found here. HeartPower's four key messages about heart health have been categorized by curriculum, lifestyle message, format, and grade level. You can use these science-based online resources to introduce your students to healthy habits and choices that can improve their quality of life for many years. You can even help them learn decision-making skills that can save lives, including their own!
