Kids Heart Challenge

My name is Jackie and I am your school’s American Heart Association representative. I'm blessed to work with Mr. Engen for the Kids Heart Challenge service-learning program.

I want to thank the entire Oaklawn Elementary community for opening their hearts and supporting the mission of the American Heart Association. It is so heartwarming to see how supportive your families have been of Kids Heart Challenge. Whether you participated in the past or you joined the team this year, I can't thank you enough!

I would also like to thank Mr. Engen for being FIERCE in his support of this service-learning program. His support has made a difference and YOU have saved A LOT of lives!

Together, you’ve raised nearly $6,700 to support the American Heart Association’s mission of building longer, healthier lives.

I invite you to take a minute to watch this thank you video from our Heart Hero survivor ambassadors

You all are truly a blessing and I can't thank you enough for your continued support.

Jackie Weir - American Heart Association
