PHILADELPHIA – Employees and members of American Heritage FCU took a plunge into 700 gallons of red gelatin, helping to raise $25,000 for the Children’s Seashore House at the Children’s Hospital during the credit union’s 19th annual Gelatin Olympics last week.

Sliders gathered pledges from sponsors in the weeks leading up to the event, dressed up in their wildest costumes, and took the plunge into the pool.

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 $790,000 to the Children’s Seashore House.
