Jump Start Your Heart is a nonprofit organization whose purpose is to educate parents and student athletes on cardiac issues such as hypertrophic cardiomyopathy. Parents who have children in any competitive sports need to watch this video because the standard physical tests that are done to make an athlete eligible to play is NOT enough. This is why we see a lot of high school, college, and professional athletes in all sports collapse and possibly die not showing any symptoms of illness.
This Baton Rouge based organization needs your help as their goal is to reach every high school student athlete in Louisiana and administer EKGs and echocardiograms AT NO CHARGE! These additional tests can usually run from $400-$600 for the screening.
