American Heart Challenge

On behalf of the American Heart Association, thank you very much for your school’s donation of *$15,782.65 from your school's recent Kids Heart Challenge (KHC)/American Heart Challenge event. Your efforts make a tremendous impact and help millions of Americans through increased awareness of cardiovascular disease, lifesaving scientific research and critically needed education efforts.

Once all donations are processed, and if your school qualifies, a US Games certificate will be sent via email and/or your direct contribution will be mailed as a check to the school. These give-backs will arrive in 3-4 weeks and we hope they enhance the wellness education efforts within your classroom and school with our sincerest thanks.

Additionally, the American Heart Association’s Grant Program offers participating schools grants ranging from $250 to $3,500 for health and wellness initiatives including physical activity equipment. Eligibility requirements are available through your online Headquarters under Teacher Resources.

The American Heart Association also provides up to 12 professional development hours in partnership with OPEN’s Teacher Learning Center.

Families and schools are critical links in providing the foundation for cardiovascular wellness in our country. Your support and participation in the AHC/KHC goes a long way in helping others.

Warm regards,

Nancy Brown
Chief Executive Officer, American Heart Association
