“Race to Keep Hearts Beating” Benefit Dinner & Texas Hold’em Poker Tournament

The 6th “Race to Keep Hearts Beating” Benefit Dinner & Texas Hold’em Poker Tournament will be held this year on Saturday, May 5, 2018 at the Folsom Community Center from 5:00-11:00pm. In order to ensure the success of this very important fundraising event, we are seeking contributions in order to help defray the hard costs associated with this event.

The goal of this extraordinary fundraiser is to continue to raise public awareness about SADS, Sudden Arrhythmia Death Syndrome. Approximately 5,000 to 10,000 youths die from sudden cardiac arrest each year in the U.S. Each year, one in 200,000 high school athletes in the U.S. will die suddenly due to SADS, most without any prior symptoms. Most of these deaths are due to undetected heart conditions, many of which could have been identified with a simple cardiac screening.
