To stop sudden cardiac arrest (SCA), Heartfelt is partnering with LBHS to offer student/athlete and family cardiac screenings in the north gym. For a donation of $85 per person, they will screen adults and kids, ages five and up. The echocardiogram (ECHO) and electrocardiogram (EKG) are the best tools for detection of the risks of sudden cardiac death. These tests typically cost $1,500 and are usually not covered by insurance.

Heartfelt Cardiac Projects is a nonprofit organization dedicated to saving lives from this nation’s number one killer, sudden cardiac arrest. Residents can help with their “heartfelt” efforts to save lives through early detection, education, and increasing public awareness.

A young athlete dies from SCA every three days. SCA is the #1 killer of women, and kills 450,000 people annually.

The event is sponsored by the Laguna Beach High School Athletic Boosters.
