This year, ACHA set an ambitious goal to raise $40,000 in the month of February through the Meil Family Foundation Valentine Challenge. For those of you not keeping track, that’s 42% more funding than in 2011. Our donors rose to the challenge and raised more than $44,000 for ACHA through their personal gifts and solicitations of family members and friends!
In speaking with Barry Meil, ACHA’s Board Vice Chair, about the success of this year’s challenge he wanted ACHA to pass along the following message: It is an honor for me and my family to be able to provide such a successful giving opportunity for ACHA’s members. It is exciting to see the challenge grow throughout the years, as it shows that more people in the CHD community understand the importance of ACHA’s mission and work.
The support from our members never seizes to amaze us. Without their unwavering commitment to ACHA, our programming in outreach, education, advocacy and research would not be possible. From the bottom of our hearts, we thank each and every one of you who participated in the Meil Family Foundation Valentine Challenge this year.
