Heart Screening in TX Schools

Our screening calendar is filling up as schools return to in-person learning, and we are excited to be working in schools again!

Heart screening is more necessary now than ever in a Covid-19 world. Studies show young people exposed to the coronavirus need to monitor their hearts as they return to play.

If your 2020 screening was canceled because of school closures, email us TODAY and we'll get you rescheduled.

We updated our Safety and Cleaning protocols for the cleanest and safest screening method possible, and are updating our methods regularly as new guidelines are released. Every school has its own needs and, as always, we are flexible.

If you have any questions about our commitment to health and safety, please let us know:

The Cody Stephens Go Big or Go Home Memorial Foundation was founded in memory of Cody Stephens, who died from an undetected heart condition just weeks before graduation from Crosby High School.

Before he died, Cody was talking to his father, Scott, about his goals to play football in a big way in college and beyond. Cody told Scott, "Go big or go home, Dad."

After Cody died, his family turned Cody's motto into a screening effort to prevent other tragedies. It has been a BIG effort in a BIG state - now more than 40% of all Texas schools now offer heart screening.

Texas House Bill 76 - Cody's law, was passed in the 2019 state legislature and gives parents in every school district the right to choose heart screening for their child.

The Cody Stephens Foundation partners with the largest to the smallest schools, in big cities and remote communities.


Cody believed in going big.


We believe going big means everyone should have the opportunity to compete with a healthy heart, no matter where they live, their economic status or at what level they play.

A Foundation update from Scott Stephens in December 2020, on what would have been Cody's 27th birthday. And a word of thanks to our sponsors for years of generous support.
