On Saturday, February 20, 2016 Southwest's Heart and Vascular Center and the Quinn Driscoll Foundation are offering Young Champions Heart Screenings.The Quinn Driscoll Foundation is named for 13-year-old Quinn Driscoll, a student athlete at Wy’ East Middle School who died in 2009 after suffering cardiac arrest while running on the track during gym class. It is believed that a heart condition can exist in roughly 1 out of 500 individuals, and approximately one case of sudden cardiac death occurs every three days in organized youth sports across the United States.Those are crazy numbers.
