Hoops for Healthy Hearts

The Foundation recently successfully ran a scheme in 10 primary schools in Plymouth, together with primaries in Exeter, North Devon, Torbay and Truro, promoting healthy living and the importance of maintaining a healthy heart.

The scheme was funded by Heart Research UK and Subway, and the scheme ran from December 2014 until July 2015.

As part of the scheme, the schools received 6 weeks of coaching, a healthy living roadshow, ticket promotions, prize giveaways, and each pupil was given a healthy living booklet, especially written and designed for the Raiders’ Hoops 4 Healthy Hearts scheme. These booklets received fantastic feedback from schools, teachers and pupils, providing the most important information in an easy to understand and simple way, that helped really engage the pupils involved.
