July 2018

The IAHPERD golf outing was hosted at Bos Landen Golf Course on Friday, July 13th in Pella. We gave away some great prizes and had a lot of fun (Even though my team got last place)! Erik Heard, Chris Roberts, Chad Jamison, and Joe Tangen won the tournament with 55 for a score! Six teams played in the 18 hole tournament. We raised $1,098.25 to go towards fulfilling equipment grants next year.

With SHAPE America no longer partnering with the American Heart Association, IAHPERD will no longer be funded through Jump Rope for Heart funds. We are currently looking for other innovative funding streams whether it be through new partnerships or planning fundraising events. IAHPERD will still partner with the American Heart Association, but at the advocacy level so their fundraisers won't directly benefit our association.

We look forward to offering the same IAHPERD benefits to our members in the future. Our goal is to continue to improve our association and support the needs of membership.

If you are interested in helping with fundraising efforts, we could use some help on the finance committee. Please reach out to us if you would like to step into this role.
