The Marley Rose Heim Fund



On November 1st 2015 we lost our vaulting coach and dear student Marley Heim to a car accident.  The Marley Rose Heim Fund was established to allow us to continue to develop the vaulting team that she was so passionate about.  All donations to the Marley Rose Heim Fund will go to establishing a new vaulting coach and helping underprivileged students pay for vaulting lessons and what they need to be a part of the vaulting team. In lieu of flowers, please donate to Kim’s Horse and Kid Connection Scholarship Fund at Franklin Canyon Stables in honor of Marley’s memory.

Her free, beautiful and loving spirit will be remembered and missed by all who knew her.  We will continue to share her passion for vaulting with future generations of children riding at Franklin Canyon Stables in her memory. 

To contribute to the Marley Rose Heim Fund you you can:

For Cash, Check or Money order contributions, please make donations payable to Kim’s Horse and Kid Connection scholarship fund. Mail to:
