Kids Heart Challenge

Dear Russell Families~

At Russell School, the American Heart Association’s Kids Heart Challenge event is starting soon! 

The Kids Heart Challenge is a fun and exciting event where your student learns about their heart while helping others by raising money for the American Heart Association. It prepares your child for success through physical and emotional well-being.

Through Kids Heart Challenge, kids learn jump rope skills, how their heart works and raise money to help kids with special hearts. Have fun, learn how to stay healthy and make a difference in the lives of others!

This event will take place, at Russell, during their scheduled PE day!  More information will be coming, over the next few weeks, and the kids will participate in a kick-off assembly on January 30th!  

To get ready, help your child sign up at or download the free  “Kids Heart Challenge” app and register. Your child will choose their heart health challenge and earn a FREE powerband for registering online.  AND you can help us win the classroom challenge! The class with the most students registered online will win!  Please help us!

If you have questions about this event please contact Vicki Opstad (our Russell PE teacher) at

Thank you for your support!
