Kids Heart Challenge

The kick off starts this week (4/6-4/12 in PE class) and the KHC event will be during your PE class in 2 weeks (4/20-4/26). 


Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for joining the Kids Heart Challenge.

We are so excited about kicking off the program, and this year is going to be better than ever. We’ve got a lot of fun activities planned so our students are really going to get their bodies moving.

This program is so important for students’ health. The latest studies show that more than 50% of U.S. kids don’t get as much physical activity as they need. And nearly 1 in 5 is obese.

We’re grateful you’re helping us change that by raising funds to support the American Heart Association. The money will fund important scientific research that will save countless lives. For 41 years, the American Heart Association has supported schools like ours, and we’re thrilled to be working with them again.

We’ve made it easy for you to raise money online with your personal fundraising page.
Follow these steps:


  1. JOIN OUR TEAM at (on your phone or computer) and search for our school and click “Sign Up.”
  2. DOWNLOAD THE APP for iPhone or Android by searching for Kids Heart Challenge. You can unlock your Heart Heroes, bring them to life and do some fundraising from your mobile device.
  3. JUMP START YOUR DONATIONS by being the first to give.
  4. ENCOURAGE YOUR STUDENT TO COMPLETE FINN'S MISSION in Headquarters, where they will learn key lessons about heart health!

See how your fundraising and donations are making a difference for families like Alexa’s.

Thank you for being part of the Kids Heart Challenge supporting our school and the American Heart Association. Together, we will help save lives.
