History

EMHS Swine Week 2015 Total

Edmond Memorial’s annual community service project, Swine Week, began in 1986 when a small group of students decided to raise money for a friend in need. The students approached the principal, who supported the endeavor and even agreed to kiss a pig. $3,000 was raised, the principal kissed a pig, and Swine Week was born. 

Flash forward 30 years, and EMHS students have since raised over $5 million dollars for charity. Last year, we raised $524,452 for Calm Waters Center for Families and Children! Swine Week’s money was able to help Calm Waters continue their grief counseling programs and expand their outreach.

2017 Swine Week Recipient

2017 marks the 31st year of serving our community through this philanthropic venture, and we would deeply appreciate your support in our mission to help this year’s recipient, the Isaiah Stone Foundation, an organization dedicated to supporting families that struggle with the impacts epilepsy. 

Renzi and Lee Anne Stone lost their son, Isaiah, when he was 11 months old from a seizure in the middle of the night. They spent the previous year battling with Isaiah’s frequent seizures and the lack of pediatric neurology care in Oklahoma. After he died, the Stone’s started a fund at Children’s Hospital in Isaiah’s name to help raise awareness about epilepsy. This, then turned into the 501c3, the Isaiah Stone Foundation. Their mission is to help families who care for someone with epilepsy in Oklahoma, support organizations seeking to cure the disease, and inspire others to lead. This year, we are collecting donations which would allow them to fund genetic testing, develop outreach programs, and provide grants for families dealing with this disease. Their impact will be so significant in our community because epilepsy is often overlooked despite its devastating effects on families. We cannot do this alone. Your donation and support would be greatly appreciated and would help impact the lives of so many Oklahomans in need.
