Mrs. Blunt has worked for the past few years as the in-school coordinator of the Hoops for Heart program. She was recently informed that a 2012 New Bridge Hoops for Heart picture has been published in a national calendar. Based on the New Bridge history of participation, our school was selected (see picture #4 below).
Hoops for Heart is a national educational fund-raising program that is sponsored by the American Heart Association and the American Alliance for Health, Physical Education, Recreation and Dance (AAHPERD). In March, 2013, Mrs. Blunt will again begin a two week effort to raise money to fund critical research and educational programs that fight heart disease and stroke, our nations’ number 1 and number 3 killers.
