Welcome and Aloha!

HAHPERD Welcomes New Jump Rope/Hoops for Heart Youth Marketing Directors and Coordinator 

At a recent gathering, HAHPERD welcomed Guillermo Ruiz (pictured right) and Melissa Millen (pictured middle) as the American Heart Association's new JRFH and HFH Youth Marketing Directors for Hawaii.  The evening also featured long time coordinator Jay Tschillard stepping down and passing on the coordinator duties to HAHPERD member Delcy Saito.  To thank Jay for his many years of service and to bestow upon him the honorary title of coordinator emeritus, Kathy Young the AHA Vice President of Youth Marketing, presented Jay with a very special AHA aloha shirt.  

HAHPERD president Yvette Ikari welcomed everyone and expressed both gratitude and excitement as the strong partnership between HAHPERD and AHA continues.  If you are interested in getting more information about Jump Rope for Heart or Hoops for Heart or learning more about the American Heart Association, please visit http://heart.org or contact Melissa at mailto:melissa.millen@heart.org
