Play Smart Youth Heart Screenings
Sudden cardiac arrest is the #1 cause of death in student athletes, and in many cases, it may be preventable by identifying asymptomatic heart disease before it strikes. Since 2012, we have provided over 20,000 free heart screenings by checking a simple, painless cardiac test - an electrocardiogram. We have diagnosed hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, long QT syndrome, Wolff-Parkinson-White syndrome and many other conditions that can be treated or monitored. We are proud to partner with Portland Public Schools, Portland Parks and Recreation, the Timbers Academy and the hundreds of donors whose generosity keeps this program free to all young people ages 12-18 who wish to participate.
