I was discouraged to see the recent pie in the face picture and article with the Fergus Falls Public Schools and American Heart Association fundraiser challenge. While this was a worthy service activity, I failed to see how the reward supported the goal. Instead of pie in the face, how about kids and adults celebrate and have fun together by jumping rope, relays with teachers challenging the kids or other activity reflecting American Heart Association goals. Follow that with a heart healthy snack. A reward like that would be good for all our hearts.
