CASSELTON, ND—Thursday, Central Cass phy ed teacher Chris Hahn came face-to-face with a beauty to make good on a promise.

He challenged his students to raise $10,000 dollars in this year's Jump Rope for Heart event.

The kids reached their goal and sent Hahn to the NDSU Dairy Barn.

That's where he puckered up for a very wet kiss from "Brie" the cow.

Top fundraisers Jacob and Isabelle got a kick out of the smooch.

Hanh says it was worth the slimy experience.

"It raises money to help fight heart disease and if we can help prevent any more deaths because of that, then it will definitely be worth it." says Hann.

In its years of the fundraiser Central Cass has raised more than $150,000 dollars.

Hahn is already planning next year's challenge.
