Official Kids’ Heart Challenge Totals

Thank you to all families who were able to help my P.E. friends gather donations for such an incredibly important cause. And thank you to those of you who tried, but were unsuccessful. I greatly appreciate your efforts!

Here are this year’s official totals (I received confirmation e-mails from AHA today!) that our schools are have been able to contribute to the American Heart Association through the Kids’ Heart Challenge:

Eshleman – $3, 945.50
LeTort – $12, 011.45

As a result of meeting and beating their $12,000 goal, my friends at LeTort will have the pleasure of seeing me dress up as a unicorn for a day, and we will place Mrs. McPherson in a cage for a day!!! These dates are to remain secret. However, there will be photographic evidence provided! 😉

What an amazing job from EVERYONE involved! Here is a small message from our AHA Rep. It was addressed to me, but it is really for all of YOU:

“On behalf of the American Heart Association and the millions of Americans we serve, thank you very much for your schools’ donations. Families and schools are critical links in providing the foundation for cardiovascular wellness in our country. By holding this event at your schools each year, you raise awareness about heart-healthy living. And you help us fund more lifesaving scientific research and critically needed education efforts. Thank you. Almost every family in America is touched by heart disease or stroke, and your school’s contribution will significantly impact our fight against these devastating illnesses. We hope that you, your faculty and your students found this lifesaving effort rewarding and enjoyable. You are touching so many lives – and life is why we exist as an organization. Your help and support are greatly appreciated, and we look forward to partnering again with you next year!”

Thank you again, friends at Eshleman and LeTort… You seriously rock my world!
