One of the scariest things to happen to kids and parents is finding out that your child athlete has an unknown heart condition. Operation Screen Your Athlete wants to eliminate that worry.

It has happened many times. A child, especially an athlete, has been competing in their sport and they drop to the ground for no reason only to find out later it was a cardiac issue that had gone unnoticed.

If you have kids or student athletes, then you need to know about Operation Screen Your Athlete. It's free and it could save your child's life.

Check out their Facebook page for all the details of upcoming events and chances to screen your athlete. The group's next scheduled screening is Saturday, November 12 from noon to 4 p.m. at the Lubbock Heart Hospital.
