Hoops for Heart 2017
This year's Hoops for Heart Campaign raised $3500.00. At the rate of "$50.00 saves one heart," Mulvane Grade School and the Mulvane Community saved 70 lives with this year's campaign! Since the community has been involved in this program (starting in 1996), we have raised almost $170,000, making a difference in 3400 lives!
Contestants in this year's Shoot-Out, held on Thursday, March 16, 2017, were as follows: Lucas Sorensen, Cannon Lampe, Gavin Young, Silas Stewart, Joseph Bull, Dylan Mow, Hunter Tiede, Keilen Bowen, Levi Kasparek, Kyler Smith, Slader Swonger, Joshua Plain, Colton Flaming, Fisher Dye, Teagan Garrison, Madison Dunbar, Ashley Young, Lexi Cunningham, Makenna Treat, Brodee Ferry, Makaylen Warner, Madi Phipps, Savanna Zimmer, Addison Mackey, Maggie Mbisso, Marley Bowker and Shye Nivens.

Winners of the Boys' contest are as follows: Third place went to Silas Stewart; Second went to Joseph Bull; and First place went to Cannon Lampe. Prizes for this event were provided by Mulvane Recreation Center, Derby Recreation Center as well as Sonic from Derby, Kansas. This year's Mulvane Grade School Hoops for Heart Poster Student was Laiken Hladik whose "heart saving story" was shared with those assembled. This year's "I Did My Part To Save A Heart" winner was Madi Phipps. Madi raised a record breaking amount of over $1,000 dollars for this year's campaign, in honor of Ashlyn Alumbaugh, a student at the Grade School who is also a "Heart Survivor!"
