Kids’ Heart Challenge

We will again be raising money to help research and treat sick kids with special hearts. Each year, we partner with the American Heart Association for this great cause. Formerly known as “Jump Rope for Heart”, the Kids’ Heart Challenge takes the same format as in past years… Students raise funds, they earn cool “Thank you!” gifts, and we celebrate at the end of Heart Month (February) with a P.E. Party in their regular Phys. Ed. time slot.

This year, both Eshleman and LeTort are setting the bar HIGH…

Eshleman Goal – $11,000

LeTort Goal – $12,000

If we can meet out goal amounts, each school will surpass the $80,000 lifetime mark, which would be momentous – AND there will be an additional celebration involving Mr. McCabe and the principal of your school… More details to follow!

So, please register your student(s) online at heart.org/kidsheartchallenge, have your student (and you!) choose a HEART HEALTH CHALLENGE and begin our fundraising journey for 2019! You may also collect from friends and family members and return the collection envelope to school.

Donation Deadline – Thursday, February 28, 2019.

WE CAN DO THIS, PENN MANOR!
