Students at Rocky Mountain Elementary School in Elkford have raised an amazing $8582.19 for the Heart and Stroke Foundation at a recent Jump Rope/Hoops for Heart event. The primary students participated in jump rope for heart and the intermediate students participated in hoops for heart activity.

Students canvassed friends and family, and  with the support of teachers they have again had another very successful year.  RMES teachers Mrs. Madsen and Mrs. Durand have been the facilitators of the annual RMES Hoops for Heart fundraiser for the past ten years.  Over the years, approximately $100, 000 has been raised.
