Granby Elementary students raise $7,500 for charities

Granby Elementary School held a fundraiser called “GES Hops for Healthy Hearts” on Feb. 25 & 26 and raised more than $7,500 for local charities, the American Heart Association and for improvements to their school’s playground.

All 350 students participated during their P.E. class time, led by teacher Maggie Keller, through a variety of events that included hopping, jumping, swinging and scootering. The students collected pledges for their participation and earned prizes for the different levels of money they raised.

In addition to the prizes, the top fundraiser in each grade will throw a cream pie at a teacher, principal and counselor, and the top money-raising class will get a lunch party. The student body voted to award a portion of the money raised to Grand County Pet Pals and Mountain Family Center as well as the American Heart Association.
