In baseball speak, we are way behind in the count against Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA). The American Heart Association reports that up to 9,500 youth are affected annually. This equates to one youth, every hour, every day we lose each year. One student athlete dies every three days. We're sharing our story to help change that - we want to get ahead in the count against SCA.
We want all student-athletes - indeed, all youth in our communities - CPR/AED trained and heart screened, as well as to see more AEDs.
Teaming up with community leaders, we're organizing CPR/AED training and certification events, as well as youth heart screenings.
It will take a team to win our battle to get ahead in the count against SCA. Join with us to help save the lives of youth in our communities.
In support of our mission to strike out Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA), we've created two types of events. Our "Team Up with BC20 to Strike Out SCA!" event, includes Youth Heart Screenings by Athletic Testing Solutions, and CPR/AED training by the Olathe Fire Department. The second, our "Team Up with BC20 to Keep the CPR Beat!" event, focuses on CPR/AED training by the Olathe Fire Department. Contact us if you're interested in hosting an event.
Our next event is below. See all upcoming events here.
Olathe West High School
MAKE AN APPOINTMENT! We're teaming up to strike out Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA) on Saturday, January 11, at Olathe West High School. Our goal is simple - we want to get ahead in the count against SCA to save the lives of youth in our communities.
The American Heart Association reports that up to 9,500 youth are affected by SCA annually. This equates to one youth, every hour, every day we lose each year.
To help get ahead in the count to save lives, we're teaming up with Olathe West High School, the Olathe Fire Department and Athletic Testing Solutions to provide:
1. Free Hands-Only CPR and AED Training for up to 8 small groups at a time in 15-20 minute rotations all day for everyone that attends (we encourage adults, families, and students to attend).
2. Youth Heart Screenings for up to 58 registrants. Make your appointment. Also, discounted pricing will be available, as ATS is committed to ensuring that all children have an equal opportunity to receive the ATS Heart Check, providing valuable insight into their heart health.
This 3rd BC20 event has the potential to impact over 200 people - who's ready to team up with us?
