Our mission is to build healthier lives, free of cardiovascular diseases and stroke.


Jump Rope For Heart (JRFH) and Hoops For Heart (HFH) are national education and fundraising programs jointly sponsored by SHAPE America and the American Heart Association. They 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. One of the perks of participating in the programs is the opportunity to teach the younger generation about heart healthy living. Encourage life-long, healthy habits in your students by including cross-curricular heart-health education in your event!

Get Involved

When you complete a Jump Rope For Heart or Hoops For Heart event, you provide future generations with the knowledge and tools they need to stay heart healthy for life. Proceeds from Jump Rope For Heart and Hoops For Heart events fund research and life-saving programs across the nation and provide professional development opportunities for physical educators who work to promote healthy lifestyle habits in today's youth.
