Dear Parent/Guardian and Families.
Here at Wayne Elementary, we participate in a very special community service program to raise funds for the American Heart Association. Were joining in the fight against our nations No. 1 and No. 3 killers cardiovascular diseases and stroke.(Kids Heart Challenge) is a nationwide event that helps students learn about the benefits of regular physical activity and heart health while raising funds to fight heart disease and stroke. The money our school raises will fund potentially lifesaving research and will support programs that help people in our community.
Most people dont realize that the roots for cardiovascular disease in adults often begin in childhood from age 10 and even younger. Thats why its important to make changes now to help your children and other family members. Eat healthy foods, stay physically active and live tobacco-free.Kids Heart Challenge is a fun and effective way to teach heart-healthy living. It emphasizes the importance of physical activity as our children do something they enjoy -jumping rope.Link to Signing up for Online Donations:Document Links for at home fun(home use only)*FUN FACT*Since 2005, WES has rasided over $180,000 for the American Heart Association!
