Black Hawk Elementary students honored for raising money for AED defibrillator

Posted:

If sudden cardiac arrest would strike someone at Black Hawk Elementary, the chances for survival are increased greatly thanks to the hard work and fundraising of a group of students.    

At a school wide Character Counts assembly, Black Hawk Elementary students were awarded by Rapid City School District Superintendent Dr. Tim Mitchell. The students raised $1,000 to buy an AED defibrillator for their school. They say they're glad they can help and it will be useful in emergency situations.    

"If somebody had a heart attack for grandparents day or when they came in we wanted to help save them for when the paramedics come," said Molly Ischkum, a fifth grader at Black Hawk Elementary.  

The students used their student store to raise the money. Dr. Mitchell paid for the remaining amount.
