Kids with special hearts are helped by the money you raise
You play basketball and learn about your heart and how to keep it healthy
How Does It Work?
When you participate in Hoops For Heart you raise donations that will go to the American Heart Association. They will use the money you raise to help pay for new medicines for kids with special hearts and to help doctors discover new medicines and treatments.
Did You Know? In fact, every year about 36,000 kids are born with hearts that aren’t the way they should be (called congenital heart defects).
