Who Do You Play For?
Our Movement is to inspire others to discover who they play for and make their impact. We hope the stories of those we’ve lost serve as an inspiration to others, and instills in them a sense of urgency, a sense that the time to make a change is now or never. Who do you play for?
Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA) is the number one killer of student athletes in the U.S. An ECG is an effective, simple and safe tool to help detect heart problems before tragedy strikes.
ECGs are Effective
The standard school physical just isn’t enough to find problems in a student’s heart. More athletes die from Sudden Cardiac Arrest than any other cause, and more than 65% of those who die show no symptoms and no history of heart problems. A recent Harvard study found the standard physical to be only 1% effective, but adding a simple electrocardiogram (ECG or EKG) catches up to 89% of heart issues.
