Join us in our efforts to raise healthy heart awareness and to support the American Heart Association. Our Walk for Heart event is the week of May 11-May 15 during physical education classes. This year you are able to create a personalized page at http://www.heart.org/hoops and share it with friends and family to help raise awareness and earn "ducks" and prizes. The top earning homeroom will receive a VIP party! And that's not all.. GFMS has been chosen to participate in an exclusive program. When you create a page and send 15 emails, you receive a "surprise" duck and spread heart awareness to 15 more people!!!
