500 More Young Hearts to be Screened: April 14th
Five hundred more hearts are registered to be screened in Downingtown this April!
This time, we're focusing on the high school athletes at DHS West, DHS
East, and Bishop Shanahan High School. Most youth who have a Sudden
Cardiac Arrest event are teens and young adults living with undetected
structural and rhythmic abnormalities that present during athletic activity. Thank you, Simon's Fund and A.I.
DuPont cardiologists, for joining us again
to provide this opportunity! If you'd like to see more screenings take
place in our area, support the 5K for Aidan J. Run/Walk event (June 9, 2012).
While we rely on the generosity of the medical personnel involved, each
screening event costs Simon's Fund anywhere from $2,500 to $12,000.
Run/walk for kids' hearts!
