A Reason for Thanks - 5 Students
November 21, 2016

With Thanksgiving only 3 days away, it seems  perfect that we can now come back to you with some #'s around our first  ever Young Hearts for See More

THE STORY:

On October 5, 2014, a then Oak Park River Forest High School junior collapsed on the sidelines while at a hockey game from a sudden cardiac event. Seemingly in perfect health, there were no prior indications that something like this would occur. Thankfully, and only coincidentally, a trained medical practitioner was a spectator at the game and revived the student. However, this situation could have ended tragically. Every week the story doesn't end happily for nearly 60 students in the same age range. In fact, we've all heard of such endings in the greater Chicago area as well as the rest of the nation. Young lives lost with no hint that anything could go wrong. Fortunately, a concerned group of OPRFHS parents was able to connect members of the medical board and administrative staff of Young Hearts for Life, the largest youth heart screening program in the United States, with the OPRFHS Administration. They presented how the screening process itself is not invasive and completely painless. Because YH4L commits to educating and training volunteers for this (1) day screening, and through the generous support of donors like you, it is offered free of charge to ALL students at a high school, NOT just athletes. We are thrilled that Edward - Elmhurst Healthcare has offered to sponsor the largest portion of the October 27th screening, organizers only need to raise funds for the ancillary costs involved, such as privacy screens for students. Unfortunately, these funds are not within the current school budget nor available from the Booster Club. We are up to this challenge! With your help we can cover these other costs and save a life, or two. Any funds raised beyond what we need this year will be sent directly to Young Hearts for Life (www.yh4l.org) to assist other groups like ours provide similar screenings for other students.
