TAHPERD is excited to partner with different organizations and offer free membership as incentives for completed events.
2019-2020 School Year
You can earn free TAHPERD membership(s) by participating and completing one of two educational fundraising options, Health Moves Minds partnering with SHAPE America or Yoga Power partnering with the American Lung Association.
The American Lung Association is proud to present Yoga Power, a school-based fundraising initiative that will help bring awareness to the importance of lung health to your school.
Yoga Power is a fun way for your children to show support for the fight against lung disease and to help promote healthy lungs. By practicing yoga, children can learn how to exercise, discover the power of their breath, develop confidence and strengthen the mind-body connection. Children enjoy amazing benefits from yoga both physically and mentally. Yoga Power includes education around the importance of proper lung health and will teach healthy breathing practices to every child.
Additionally, the Yoga Power program teaches the value of community service—by collecting donations, your child can raise awareness and vital funding to help those who are suffering from lung diseases such as asthma, lung cancer and emphysema.
