Hoops 4 Heart 2017

  • The Healthful Living Department is once again getting involved with Hoops 4 Heart. We have done this for 4 years now and it has been a big success. We have managed to raise over $26,000 for the American Heart Association in those 4 years.

    This year, only 6th graders will be participating in this fundraiser. In order for your child to register and join our “Durant Road Middle School” team, follow the introductions below. Please note this will allow your child to register online and allow them to send out donation requests through email. Your child was also given a Hoops 4 Heart envelope at school to collect cash and checks also if they do not wish to register online.

    1. Click here to get to the Hoops 4 Heart site.

    2. Click “Register.”

    3. Search for our school by selecting “North Carolina” for the state and “Raleigh” for the city.

    4. A list of schools will pop up. Type in Durant Middle and make sure you select Durant Road Middle and not Durant Road Elementary. Once you see DRMS, click “join team.”

    5. You will then be asked to create a username, password, and answer other questions. Please fill all of the fields out and click continue. Eventually you will be taken to your “dashboard.” Once there, students can keep track of all donations made to them and even send out a personalized link that directs people straight to their donation page. Students can also collect cash/checks, using the money envelope, but this online page they can create is easier to get donations and you don’t have to worry about holding on to physical money.

    Not only does the money raised go to a great cause, but the kids get prizes depending on how much money they raise. On top of the prizes through the American Heart Association, the top male and top female 6th grade fundraiser will get to pie a healthful living teacher in the face!
