The Barkhamsted School Kids Heart Challenge for grades 2 – 6 will be held Feb. 16th – March 26th, 2021. The fundraiser benefits the American Heart Association.
This is what the school newsletter has to say:
“Unfortunately, due to the pandemic, all fundraising will happen online. There will be no handling of checks or cash. Please refer to the parent letter and virtual fundraising envelope for more information, including instructions on how your child can sign up. The donations will be due on March 26th. We will be holding the actual event in May, after school, when the weather is suitable. At the event we will have socially distanced stations with activities, healthy snacks, and will distribute the prizes the students have earned through fundraising. Our school has sponsored this event for 22 years and it has been a favorite of hundreds of students. We hope you will consider signing your child up and take advantage of all the online information and activities. ”
