Frequently Asked Questions
When is the Kids Heart Challenge event?
Wednesday, February 8th - Friday, March 3rd
Are we collecting money or doing online only this year?
Both:) Though ONLINE is preferred and easier in my opinion, you can definitely bring cash money. Please ONLY BRING CASH MONEY THE FINALL WEEK OF OUR CAMPAIGN...February 27th - March 3rd DURING YOUR P.E. TIME:)
Where and what time are the Kids Heart Challenge activities/event?
At school during P.E. class
Do I need to fill out the youth consent, release, and identification form (permission slip)?
No, some of the coordinators do their Kids Heart Challenge activities as an after-school event, therefore a release needs to be signed. We chose to do it as a part of our PE class to ensure activities are accessible to all and everyone will be able to participate.
What characters can I earn during the event?
Refer to the sheet sent home to see this year's characters;). Instant character prizes will be given out once a week on Fridays in P.E. class during our fundraiser.
If I do not set up a fundraising page or raise any money, can my child still participate in Kids Heart Challenge activities in PE?
Absolutely! We encourage children to raise funds for the American Heart Association to help kids with sick hearts but it is NOT mandatory.
When will I receive my Thank You gifts?
About a week after the event is over, Coach Griffin will place the order for the school. It takes 4-6 weeks for Kids Heart Challenge thank you gifts to come in.
