Coming Together for Heart Health!
On Sunday 28 October 2018 in Hagley Park, Christchurch you can be part of breaking the New Zealand record for the most people hula hooping together!
The Super Heart Hoop-Off is being organised as a charity event to raise funding for The Heart Foundation, and to help support and raise awareness of heart health. It will also be a combined celebration of the Heart Foundation 50th Anniversary, and In2hula’s 10th Anniversary.
The main event of the afternoon will be an attempt to break the current New Zealand record for the most people hula hooping together in one place for at least two minutes consistently. The record of about 150 people is currently held by a group in Invercargill. We would like to bring the record back to Christchurch!
This event is for all ages from preschool children connected with the Hoop with Heart programme through to grey-power hoopers.
The theme for the event is super heroes and dressing up is highly encouraged! Super hero back-drop banners will be available for the public to take their own photos in front of.
The Flat Man, Dark Side Entertainment and Melanie Poppins will also be in attendance on the day, mingling with the crowd and posing for photographs.
Event sponsors will be invited to have an information tent, and stage performances will be given by various members of the hooping community.
Sign up for The Super Heart Hoop-Off newsletter to get all the information and stories in the lead up to the event.
Register individually, or as a family,
or as a team.
Prizes will be distributed throughout the afternoon for best costumes, inspirational hooping, team entry and
general prize draws.
It is free to attend the event as an observer, but to hula hoop as part of the NZ record attempt hoop-off you need to register and pay a donation fee which will go to the Heart Foundation.
Ticket prices include a processing fee, but the rest goes to the Heart Foundation as a donation.

What if your staff members can’t hula hoop?
In some ways it is even better if your staff members can’t hula hoop to start with as learning a new skill together where everyone is out of their comfort zone and is collaborating in a new situation is one of the best ways to build connection among your staff.
In2hula hula hoop classes are marked by laughter, encouragement and celebration.
