Dear Crichfield Elementary Parent or Guardian,

It’s time for our traditional partnership event with the American Heart Association - Kids Heart Challenge – formerly Jump Rope for Heart.

Heart disease is the No.1 killer of all Americans and 80% of it may be preventable through lifestyle changes. Kids Heart Challenge teaches your child the importance of heart-healthy habits – a foundation for the rest of his/her life. This service-learning program will also share with your child the inspirational stories of children who have been touched by this disease while they raise funds to help kids like them - and save and improve all lives.

Raising money online really is the safest and easiest way to reach out to distant friends and family and even post to your social media accounts. Download the Kids Heart Challenge app or go to: http://www2.heart.org/goto/crichfield

This year we are only accepting online donations or e-checks via the Kids Heart Challenge App. We will not accept any cash or paper checks. Please remember you can see all of the Kids Heart Challenge characters come to life on the app as well!

During our Kids Heart Challenge program, your child will learn about taking care of their hearts and participate in cardio-pumping challenges. Plus, our school can earn PE equipment and your child can earn fun thank-you gifts – some that they will receive immediately and some that will arrive after our event.

We look forward to a successful and meaningful Kids Heart Challenge event at Crichfield this year!

Thank you!

Mrs. Noveroske
