Take the #Jump4More Health & PE Challenge

Join the fight for more funding

On SPEAK Out! Day during American Heart Month, HPE advocates will meet face-to-face with their members of Congress to ask for more Title IV, Part A federal funding under the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA). These funds can support a well-rounded education, specifically health and PE in schools.

American Heart Association and SHAPE America invite your students to speak out too by taking part in a fun video challenge! Let your Congressional representatives hear directly from your students on why HPE are so important!
