Simon’s Fund & IBJI Team Up for Free Heart Screenings

Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA) is the #1 cause of death for student athletes, claiming thousands of lives a year. Unfortunately, Sudden Cardiac Arrest happens unexpectedly and the only way to prevent it is to get tested and watch for the warning signs.

The good news is Simon’s Fund and IBJI are teaming up to provide free heart screenings for middle school students in the Highland Park area.  The screenings will be for students in Grades 6–8, on Sunday, April 14, 2013 at Illinois Bone & Joint Institute Rehab – Highland Park 1919 Skokie Valley Road Highland Park, IL 60035.

Simon’s Fund Organization

Simon’s Fund was established in 2005 in memory of Simon Sudman, a seemingly healthy three month old that died in his sleep.  The organization is dedicated to increasing the awareness of the need for heart screenings, through education, funding research, advocating for legislation, and establishing a national registry.  Simon’s Fund protects kids by providing free screenings and checking their hearts for defects.  The organization has already provided over 5000 screenings and counting.

RSVP at Simonsfund.org

IBJI and Simon’s Fund are working together to provide this special opportunity, but we need you to take advantage.  In order for your child to participate in this screening, you will need to register at simonsfund.org.  On the day of the screening, a parent or legal guardian must be present and expect the screening process to take approximately 40 minutes.

Who: Students in Grade 6 – 8
When: Sunday, April 14th, 9am – 3pm
Where: Illinois Bone & Joint Institute Rehab – Highland Park 1919 Skokie Valley Road Highland Park, IL 60035.
