Check out the latest on the Kids Heart Challenge HERE
Blaine School is getting ready to kick-off KIDS HEART CHALLENGE for students K-8 (formerly Jump Rope for Heart) with the American Heart Association! We are so excited to get the program rolling and teach your student how to care for their hearts– physically and emotionally– while raising lifesaving donations to fight the nation’s #1 killer, heart disease.
Our American Heart Association representative joined us at school on Friday to talk with our students about the work the AHA does and to challenge our students to start living a healthy lifestyle. With the help of our friends, the HEART HEROES, our school is going to help fight Heart Disease! The event will be the week of February 11th – 15th for students K-8.
All of our Heart Heroes have a special message they are teaching the students about heart health. Make sure you ask your student what they learned from their new friend.

Let’s get started!
ANY student (K-8) who takes the KIDS HEART CHALLENGE online will earn a free glow-in-the-dark wristband to wear proudly! Then, once your student collects $5 or more in donations they will start earning their own Heart Heroes and a backpack clip for them to hang on!
Here are four easy steps to get your student’s online fundraising page set up and start collecting lifesaving donations. Check out this tutorial if you need further assistance: Parent Tutorial for Student Web Page
