Free Heart Screening Event

Dear NGBSA Families,

Gwinnett County Parks & Recreation are partnering with the organization “Who We Play For, Smiling Hearts and Live Healthy Gwinnett”  to have heart screenings conducted on student athletes.

Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA) is the 1 Killer of student athletes and the leading cause of death on school campuses. 1 in 300 young people have an undetected heart condition that puts them at risk for SCA. There is a 90% chance that young people will die if a SCA event occurs.

The flyer below is for a community heart screening event on 3/11/23 from 10am-2pm ate Rhodes Jordan Park Community Center. It is available for free through a donor so please take advantage if you can and/or spread the word.

These screenings are not done with a regular physical and these heart conditions go undetected. Heart conditions like Cardiomyopathy can be detected with these screenings and can save a child’s life.

Use the URL or QR code in the flyer to register or learn more details about the event and the foundation. This is screening is dedicated in memory of Nick Blakely and Jacob Cardiello.

Stay safe!
NGBSA Board
