PHILADELPHIA – American Heritage FCU’s 18th Annual Gelatin Olympics raised $25,000 for the Children’s Seashore House at the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia.

The June 8 event had more than 100 participants and 500 spectators. Despite extreme heat, sliders who gathered pledges from sponsors in the weeks leading up to the event, dressed up in costumes and took the plunge into a pool full of 700 gallons of bright red gelatin.

Since 1996, American Heritage’s Kids-N-Hope Foundation has contributed more than $675,000 to the Children’s Seashore House.
