Take the HEART Challenge by helping us meet our match donation goal today!

Oct 20, 2014 |

Last year, an anonymous donor challenged us to raise $5,000 in two months for our HEART Program with a promise of an additional $10,000 if we succeeded. Thanks to our generous donors, we met our goal. The challenge is back – are you ready to meet the match?

Each dollar you give between now and December 31 will be TRIPLED by our anonymous donor, so your generosity is thrice as nice this season.

HEART is a community favorite program, giving more than 600 older adults and seniors in our area an opportunity to stay physically and mentally healthy with fun and dynamic classes, like swimming, yoga and more! We know that with more seniors than ever before, keeping our neighbors in shape is critical; and we know that HEART works. 84% of our seniors reported feeling healthier after taking a class with US, AND they're performing better than their peers in mental health assessments, too.

Your gifts matter to our seniors and our community; you won't believe what even a small amount can provide:

  • $5 pays for a latex swim cap, needed to take a dip in our pool
  • $10 purchases a senior ticket to enjoy an Aquatic Exercise class
  • $35 covers a Quick Burn bone health course or one dance class
  • $100 buys six courses for one senior in a variety of areas, including photography, yoga and more!

So take the challenge today – support our seniors, and your donation will be thrice as nice!
