Midlakes physical education teachers Stephen Howcroft and Trent Jones organized the Kids Heart Challenge which brought families out for a variety of physical activities and mental challenges, including jump rope, zip line, rock climbing, bounce house, walking and more.

Students completing all the activities were allowed to pick a prize to take home. Students have also been collecting donations for the American Heart Association and had amassed approximately $3,000 through Friday, March 29.
