Young Hearts for Life Cardiac Screenings
With the support of generous donors, Lemont High School again is partnering with Young Hearts for Life to offer all Lemont High School students free cardiac screenings. The Young Hearts for Life (YH4L) Cardiac Screening program will visit Lemont High School on April 30, 2024. All students whose parents/guardians authorize them to be tested will be screened during the school day. These free screenings are made possible through the generosity of event sponsor the just1mike Foundation, as well as Young Hearts for Life donors.
Young Hearts for Life is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that provides free cardiac screenings through an electrocardiogram (i.e., ECG). These screenings help identify high school students who may be at risk for sudden cardiac death. More than 310,000 students have been screened since the inception of the Young Hearts for Life program in 2006, and more than 3,300 previously undiagnosed heart conditions have been identified.
Lemont High School has seen approximately 4,300 students receive free cardiac screenings between its events in 2012, 2014, 2016, 2017 and 2022!
