Every January, Jennifer Oitker and her team get the kids moving for their hearts. The 10th Annual "Hoops For Heart" event will be held in the Quincy Senior High School gym the week of February 10 - 14, 2014.

The PE department is asking local celebrities to go and jump rope and shoot hoops with the students to encourage a heart healthy lifestyle. This is the time when children can establish the foundation for movement skills and have positive learning experiences that can help establish a positive attitude and appreciation for participating in regular, daily physical activity for life.

I have done this before at QHS and it is a lot of fun to be with the kids. In the past I have broadcast from the gym, as well, and the kids love to be on Y101. So if I can work things out, I hope to be there having fun with the kids and getting healthy at the same time. If you have any questions, just call the PE Department at Baldwin School.
