Changes in JRFH/HFH Membership Policy: TAHPERD would like to thank you for completing a JRFH/HFH event at your school.  We know that you put in countless hours and energy to make the events successful at your school and we appreciate that work! Unfortunately, the American Heart Association has decreased the percentage of funds raised that return to the state association. (All states have received the same cuts.) The significant reduction in funds has forced TAHPERD (and all other states) to evaluate and alter the programs and services provided. For those who completed events in the 2017-2018 school year and have raised over $600.00, TAHPERD can only provide discounted membership(s), rather than free membership(s). The discounted membership cost is $15.00. For schools earning $600.01-$4,000.00 will earn 1 discounted membership. Those schools who raise between $4,000.01-$10,000.00 will receive 2nd discounted memberships (not to be combined). Those schools who raise $10,000.01 and above earn their 3rd and 4th discounted memberships (not to be combined).

Thank you for your understanding, as we know that you work hard each year completing JRFH/HFH events.
