Parents & Families

Twenty (20) children a day die from an undetected cardiac arrhythmia! Screening your child’s heart is painless and takes less than ten (10) minutes! When “detected”, it’s “treatable”! Pass it on!

Athletes & Students

No one likes taking tests! You’ve tested your skills, you’ve tested your intelligence. Now test your heart! It’s the easiest test you will ever take and it just may be your life saved!

Coaches & Teachers

As stewards of our youth, learn the facts about “cardiac arrhythmia syndromes”. Know the signs and have an action plan ready ~ AED(s) within reach, CPR training and emergency personnel on staff whenever possible! Be proactive!
