BANNER COUNTY STUDENTS SHOOT HOOPS FOR THEIR HEARTS AND HELP SAVE LIVES
Students at Banner County are jumping at the chance to fight heart disease and stroke, our nationís No. 1 and No. 4 killers. On February 24 Banner County School will host its annual Hoops for Heart event to raise money for the American Heart Association, which funds lifesaving heart and stroke research and community and educational programs for our youth.

Hoops For Heart teaches students how physical fitness benefits the heart and shows them that volunteering can be a fun and positive experience for the whole community. The need to educate children about the importance of physical activity couldnít be timelier. According to recent studies, about one-third of children ages 2 to 19 are overweight and obese.

By including physical activity into their daily routines, kids can significantly reduce the onset and burden of heart disease. By raising money through Hoops For Heart, we are preventing heart disease and obesity for the next generation of Americans. Kids are literally jumping into a heart healthier life while becoming passionate about raising money for other kids with sick hearts.

For over 18 years, millions of students have played basketball and learned about heart health and how nutrition and physical activity can help prevent heart disease and stroke. Hoops For Heart is co-sponsored by the American Heart Association and SHAPE America-Society of Health and Physical Educators.

Please help our students help others by making a donation. If you would like to help more, call your nearest American Heart Association or call 1-800-AHA-USA1 (1-800-242-8721). You can also visit us online at heart.org/hoops.

In order for a Banner County student to participate in the Hoops for Heart event the students must collect at least $5 dollars. †Remember our Hoops for Heart Event will be held at Banner County School on February 24th from 2:45 to 3:15.
