The Kids Heart Challenge is almost to an end .. and we are SO close to our goal!!! We still have time!!

Thousands of students in Iowa have signed on to take the FREE Challenge at their school to either: 1) Choose Water; 2) Be Kind; or 3) Move More! So far we have 215 5th and 6th graders taking the challenge!

The American Heart Association also funds local research right here in our area at the University of Iowa, Iowa State University, and Des Moines University! Again, this is optional to raise funds, but you can earn Thank You gifts from the AHA and as a school we can earn gift certificates for PE equipment!

Boone Middle School students can take the Challenge at: or go to and search for Boone Middle School. DEADLINE IS Thursday, MARCH 11! Thank you!
