Humble ISD has been named the Top School District Heart Walk Team in Texas by the American Heart Association for the second year in a row. The Humble ISD community came out to support the Greater Lake Houston Heart Walk on Saturday, November 8. The district's 45 campus teams raised a combined total of $38,757 for the American Heart Association, and team members participated in the event to promote walking as a healthy lifestyle. In 2013, Humble ISD raised $31,000.

“Humble ISD employees, parents, students and even mascots joined in support of the American Heart Association’s Heart and Stroke Walk,” said Amy Newman, Vice President, Youth Market, for AHA. “We are also so very proud of the district for maintaining its status as the number one fundraising school district in the state of Texas! Humble ISD has reached and overcome its first year results by raising nearly $40,000!”
