is comprised of Californians dedicated to health, wellness and fitness (especially for children), and include professional educators, administrators, researchers, youth leaders, students, dance scientists and instructors, coaches, sports medicine professionals, dancers, staff members of medical care facilities and public health agencies, fitness professionals, choreographers, therapists, recreation professionals, and others with career interests in the movement related fields.
Working with CAHPERD and participating in an event of this capacity that supports a healthy, active lifestyle has been exciting for all of us.
With today kicking off "American Heart Month," both CAHPERD and Jamba Juice hope that Jamba Jump Day and its support of rope skipping curriculum, reminded all that it doesn't require a great deal of money, expensive equipment or special, elite sports skills to be healthy and fit.
In addition to CAHPERD and Jamba Juice, other notable participants in this effort included the American Heart Association, the California Governor's Council on Physical Fitness and Sports, the Southwest District of the American Alliance for Health, Physical Education, Recreation and Dance (AAHPERD), and HOPSports, Inc.
Coordinated via live webcast and broadcast online, CAHPERD and Jamba Juice expect over 80,000 people to participate, breaking the current Australian record of 59,000 skippers.
We are very excited about our new title partnership with Jamba Juice," said Kathleen Cordes, CAHPERD President.
