About the Sponsorship
As the official partner of AHA youth programs in Colorado, RMHC is the 2019 Kids Heart Challenge sponsor. The Kids Heart Challenge prepares elementary students for future success both physically and emotionally. Through cardio-pumping physical activities, kids learn the importance of being heart-healthy and helping others through fundraising for the American Heart Association.
In 2018, RMHC sponsored a multi-platform campaign to highlight children as Heart Hero Survivors and Heart Health Heroes throughout several Denver-area school districts. The campaign encompassed 195 schools, impacting more than 100,000 enrolled students. Check out more about the 2018 program:
