To get kids involved in Jump Rope for Heart, parents can register their children online at Heart.org. To start the registration process, the parent must select the student's school, then choose the option to join the team.
Once the child is registered on the site, there are a number of activities on the website that help the child become involved in Jump Rope for Heart. For instance, there is contact information to get fundraising ideas for this program. In addition, there are tips on the site that parents may use to motivate children to make heart-healthy choices.
For students who are old enough to browse the American Heart Association website alone, there are also a number of activity suggestions that get kids involved. For instance, there are stories from other kids about getting involved with Jump Rope for Heart, and even opportunities to submit original work, such as videos, to the site. In addition, there are instructions for jump rope tricks and stunts, as well as gifts the children can earn through fundraising.
There are also opportunities for students to get involved in future Jump Rope for Heart events by designing posters and even their own fundraising webpage that can implement graphics and music.
