This past February, students from Greene County Elementary and Middle Schools jumped all over heart disease and stroke by participating in our annual Kids Heart Challenge fundraiser.
Volunteer students from second through sixth grades participated in this year’s event, raising $15,809 for the American Heart Association. Donations raised from KHC help fight heart disease and fund research.
“This year’s event was again a tremendous success! This is one of the highest totals raised in over the past 30 years of doing this challenge. The students did a fantastic job! We are very proud of these students as they have found a worthwhile cause and have worked so hard to support it. We would like to sincerely thank the parents, families and the surrounding communities who have helped and donated towards the American Heart Association by giving generously to this cause.” said Lori Danner, KHC coordinator and Greene County Elementary phys ed teacher.
