JRFH Committee

WHO ARE WE:
The IAHPERD Jump and Hoops Committee consist of several IAHPERD members from different areas of the state. We meet around four times per year and our main goal is to educate and promote the Jump and Hoops events. We also work closely with the American Heart Association representatives.
WHAT DO WE DO:
  • Our committee can put on full day workshops to hour- long presentations.
  • We can visit university and colleges to promote the events to students.
  • We hand out promotional items at the American Heart Association booth during the IAHPERD state convention.
  • We support the Health Fair in Chicago by giving away jump ropes to students.
  • We represent Illinois at the Midwest and National level.
