Our Mission . . .


*   To offer FREE ECGs to all students (not just athletes) to detect conditions which may cause Sudden Cardiac Death.

 *   To educate the community about Sudden Cardiac Death and how it can be prevented.  

 *   To help schools/trainers prepare an Emergency Action Plan to effectively manage cardiac emergencies.

*   To provide families who have lost a child or sibling with support through interaction with other families who have faced the same unimaginable loss.



“We  firmly believe ECG screening of all physically active young persons, regardless of gender or sports affiliation is clinically justified, cost-effective and ethically compelling.  There are some things you cannot place an economic value on and a child’s life is one of them.”
