Viking Elementary has been named by the American Heart Association as a recipient of the Kids Heart Challenge and American Heart Challenge grant in the amount of $1500. These funds will support a portable sound system at Viking Elementary. The American Heart Association is working with over 32,000 schools in a nationwide movement to change the course of heart disease, stroke and congenital heart defects finally and forever. The Kids Heart Challenge and American Heat Challenge grant program was developed to allow schools to implement a variety of wellness activities with additions such as physical activity equipment and resources that will impact our school. We would like to thank Mrs. Meester for all her work over the years for helping raise money for the American Heart Association.
