On Monday, March 4, 2019, we will be holding our 11th annual KIDS HEART CHALLENGE (formally Jump Rope for Heart) event to raise funds for the American Heart Association. Last year we raised over $22,000! We were one of the top schools in the state. Over the last 10 years, we have raised over $120,000 for the AHA! Students will participate in this event during their Physical Education, Art, Music, or Media time. Students will be participating in many physical activities to celebrate HEART HEALTH MONTH and to acknowledge our school’s contributions to the American Heart Association!
This event offers many benefits. First, the money our school raises will help fund potentially lifesaving research into heart disease and stroke. It will also fund the development of educational materials that teach the importance of heart health and staying fit. Our school can also earn gift certificates for physical education equipment. Finally, Kids Heart Challenge builds school spirit and helps connect our school with the community.
Please return donations in pledge envelopes or online by Monday, March 4.
You do NOT have to return the permission/release form.
Any contribution is greatly accepted! Checks should be made payable to the American Heart Association. Raising money online is a very fast and easy way to submit donations (and it is the best way for your child to earn more thank you gifts). You may raise money online by joining our school team on this website: http://www2.heart.org/goto/OlneyES.
We are looking forward to a day of fun and fitness!
