Richmond, VA – Three year old, Finn Blumenthal, will serve as a national ambassador for American Heart Association’s Kids Heart Challenge! Since 2016, Finn and his mom, Kelly, have helped local schools raise funds for the American Heart Association. This year, the American Heart Association chose Finn to be a national ambassador for the program, now in its 40th year and renamed Kids Heart Challenge to emphasize fitness challenge possibilities beyond jumping rope.
“We’ve been doing it all these years never thinking anything like this would happen,” Kelly Blumenthal said. “We’re just so surprised and excited.” @PrayersForFinn
