SHAPE America and AHA


SHAPE America JRFH & HFH Recognition Awards


Each year SHAPE America selects two Jump Rope For Heart coordinators and one Hoops For Heart coordinator to receive the prestigious SHAPE America JRFH or HFH Recognition Award. Award winners exemplify leadership in the Jump Rope For Heart or Hoops For Heart programs at the state, district or national level. The recipients will receive a stipend for their convention travel expenses. Eligible coordinators who are current SHAPE America members of at least two years may apply or be nominated by any individual. These individuals are recognized at the SHAPE America National Convention Awards Ceremony where they are honored in front of their peers for their dedication and commitment to the Jump Rope For Heart and Hoops For Heart programs.
