What’s the most exciting time of the year? Drum roll, please….. It’s the time when our entire school officially kicks off our Kids Heart Challenge program! We used to hold a jump rope for heart event, but the Kids Heart Challenge is a brand-spanking-new, out-of-this-world, more fun than ever program – and we can’t wait to participate!
For more than 40 years, the American Heart Association has supported schools like ours, and we’re thrilled to work together again this year to have fun, raise money and learn how nutrition and being active can help us live longer, healthier lives.
First things first! We have an easy way for you to raise money online by having your very own fundraising page. Simply follow these steps:
- JOIN OUR TEAM Go to www.heart.org/kidsheartchallenge (on your phone or computer) and search for our school then click “Join the Team”
- DOWNLOAD THE APP for iPhone or Android by searching for Kids Heart Challenge. You can unlock your Heart Heroes, bring them to life, and raise donations on the go!
- JUMP START YOUR DONATIONS $10 teaches more than 200 adults how to save a life by recognizing the signs of heart attack or stroke and how to administer CPR or use an AED. YOU can make a difference!
Help us fight heart disease by earning our instant heart heroes Echo and Finn with your first online donation of at least $10. Earn Ruby right away when you raise at least $40 online.
