Each year, sudden cardiac arrest (SCA) takes the lives of an estimated 100 young male and female athletes who have no known heart condition. SCA deaths aren’t common, but they are devastating. Leavenworth High School is joining other schools in the metro to ensure that our student-athletes’ hearts are safe to play.
“Student-athletes put their souls into sports...Saint Luke’s Athletic Heart Clinic makes sure their hearts can take it!”
