Girl Scouts: Learn How to Keep Your Heart Healthy
Earn a Cool-E Project Heart Patch
Girls who learn heart-healthy eating and exercise habits at a young age are on the right course to becoming healthy adults. The Girl Scouts of San Jacinto Council and Texas Heart Institute have joined together to help girls achieve a lifetime of health. By completing a series of fun and educational activities, Girl Scouts will receive a Cool-E Project Heart Patch and a certificate of completion from the Texas Heart Institute.
All activities are based on Project Heart, Texas Heart Institute's award-winning program that makes learning easy and fun. Curriculum is tailored to academic grade levels, and girls will learn about the anatomy of the heart and circulatory system, the food groups and making healthy eating choices, and how to take care of their health through the power of physical activity.
The Cool-E Project Heart Patch activity program is available from May 15-Sept. 15, 2014. For more information, contact Keri Kimler, firstname.lastname@example.org.
