As most of you know distance runners specifically, but honestly all students and athletes their hearts are VERY important, especially if they are going above and beyond in training. I myself have had issues with my heart, not even discovered until much later, which could  have resulted in Cardiac Arrest had I not been checked. I am highly encouraging you to take advantage of this screening if you can to ensure your athlete or student’s heart is working properly. Below is the information.
