How Will Your Family Celebrate "Heart Month"?

It’s never too early to start taking care of your heart. And a great time to start is February - American Heart Month. There are several activities that begin in a few weeks. Decide now how your family can participate.

To promote their students’ health, a number of Rutherford County schools will be teaching heart health to students that month and raising awareness through various American Heart Association programs and events.

Last year, more than 22,000 Rutherford County students took part in these programs.

VERBATIM:

- In elementary schools, the American Heart Association’s Jump Rope for Heart program teaches kids about healthy hearts and doing good for others at the same time. The program incorporates lessons on heart health and students jump rope as a way to both increase their own physical activity and raise funds to help others’ hearts.

- In middle schools, Hoops for Heart incorporates basketball and heart health lessons and competitions.

- In high schools, RED OUT has students raising awareness of heart health and “doing good” by supporting the mission of the American Heart Association through T shirt sales, which they then wear at a sporting event, such as a basketball game.
