This email is to let you know there is still plenty of time to participate and raise money.  ANY student that registers online (http://www2.heart.org) or using our free mobile app (jump/hoops) will receive a glow in the dark wristband.  Once your student starts collecting donations they will receive monsters from the Scare Squad and a backpack clip for them to hang on.  Every monster has a very important message to share about heart health so be sure to ask your student what they learned from their new lifesaver friends! (AND  the wristband and all the monsters COME TO LIFE! Check it out here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yk9eqMvGCx0)
