Over 36 DCSD schools support American Heart Association
A special thank you to the 36 DCSD schools that completed a heart healthy school program this year to support the American Heart Association!
Through Jump Rope/Hoops For Heart & Donate To Play Tournaments, the important heart healthy message reached over 22,000 local students & families! DCSD raised over $240,000 to support the life-saving mission of the American Heart Association. Thank you for your incredible support & important traditions every year! As a thank you back to keep kiddo’s hearts pumping, DCSD schools earned $11,000 in US Games certificates to buy new PE equipment for their schools! And starting in 2016-2017, School Event Coordinators will earn 8 Professional Development Hours for completing an AHA event.
