Hoops for Heart



Last Thursday, January 30, students met in the library for an informational meeting to discuss Hoops for Heart. The event is very similar to Jump Rope for Heart only this time we focus on..... Basketball! 

February is Heart Health Month and there are many people, young and old, who suffer from heart conditions. CMS students have the opportunity to make a difference in these peoples lives by participating in Hoops for Heart. Students are encouraged to get donations to help the American Heart Association. These donations can be cash or check, but students are also encouraged to try online donations. It is a simple way to contact family members or friends in other states who might be interested in helping out a wonderful cause. Students are rewarded with some cool prizes based off how much money they raise for the AHA. 

Donations will be accepted through the end of February. Students can turn donation packets with the money in to Miss Caskey at anytime. Extra donation packets are available if students get one filled and would like to get more. Checks should be made out to American Heart Association. 

In conjunction with our donations, the after school program will be hosting a Hoops for Heart event on Tuesday, February 18 from 4:30-5:30 at the NPAC (Chadron State College). The event will include dribbling stations, passing stations, various basketball competitions, and more! All are welcomed to attend, so bring your friends and family for some heart healthy fun! 


Any questions, please contact Miss Caskey at CMS 308-432-0708 or cmsasp@chadronschools.net.
