The Dell Rapids Middle School students once again competed in a dodgeball tournament to help raise money for the American Heart Association Awareness months of February and March. The tournament was held on Wednesday, February 14th at the middle school gym for 5th through 8th graders. The students were able to raise money by purchasing socks or a shirt which they could wear during the dodgeball tournament.
Last year the DRMS students raised a record amount of $1,627.00. The students didn’t quite reach the record amount set last year, but they were able to raise $1,331.00 for the American Heart Association.
Dell Rapids Middle School Physical Education teacher Julie Barber said, “Thank you to these DRMS students and their families for supporting this worthy cause and raising such a large amount of money. This was a great exercise in community service and working with each other in an effort to address an important issue facing our society. Together, we can make a difference!”
