PHILADELPHIA – American Heritage FCU’s 17th Annual Gelatin Olympics raised $25,000 for the Children’s Seashore House at the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia last Wednesday.

Despite the rain, sliders who gathered pledges from sponsors, dressed up in their wildest costumes and took the plunge into a pool full of 700 gallons of bright red gelatin. In addition to the Ultimate Gelatin Slide, children of all ages participated in the Gelatin Eating Contest, Balloon Toss Contest, and a Gelatin Seek and Find.

Since 1996, American Heritage’s Kids-N-Hope Foundation has contributed more than $605,000 to the Children’s Seashore House. With the support of the Foundation, the hospital is able to meet the needs of developmentally disabled children through the Music Therapy Program.
