Wacky games get your heart pumping at the Bardstown HeartChase

Posted: Updated:

The American Heart Association wants everyone to get up and moving with HeartChase. The wacky, team based challenge brings family, friends and co-workers to uncover clues, solve puzzles, and compete in challenges in a race to the finish line.

The Heart Association's Matt Roundtree and event chair Tara Lewis showed the morning team how to pull off the "tissue box of balls" and the "bucket of birdies."

HeartChase takes place on Saturday, June 22 from 9:30 a.m. to 11 a.m. It's happening in Downtown Bardstown at Spalding Hall.

HeartChase is part of the American Heart Association's My Heart. My Life. platform. The association is calling on all Americans to embrace a healthier lifestyle in order to improve cardiovascular health.

Participants will play games like Bucket Birdies and the Tissue Box Shake. For Bucket Birdies, one person holds a bucket on their head and their teammate uses a Ping-Pong paddle to see how many birdies they can knock in the bucket. For the tissue box shake, you tie a tissue box onto your rear and you jump and shake to get all of the ping pong balls out of the slot.

The American Heart Association is trying to raise $20,000. More than 150 people are expected to participate. It cost a minimum $25 to take part. To register, visit www.heartchase.org.
